Baby Merino - Drops
Drops Baby Merino is spun from extra fine merino wool fibers from free-range animals in South America. A super soft and itch-free wool yarn, it is perfectly suited for delicate baby skin. The yarn is also superwash treated which makes it machine washable and ideal for daily use.
Baby Merino is spun from multiple thin strands, which gives the yarn extra elasticity. It's this special construction that makes it extra important to treat the garment right: make sure that you knit with the correct tension and rather use a tight tension than loose. Don't wash your garment too warm, never leave it to soak and let the garment dry flat.
The yarn is cable spun, which means the stitches will be clearly defined, and the result achieved will be neat and even.

The salesperson was very knowledgeable about the yarns. I only wish there had been other colours to choose from. I was hoping for a variegated yarn in pastel shades or something not so dark. But, all in all I love the yarn and the blanket is coming along nicely.
I use this wool to make Christmas stockings for my family every year! Knits up well, very stretchy, great for colorwork. And it's SO SOFT!
Great service from Biscotte; yarn selection is great too. I’d love to support local businesses but all of the yarn stores in my area have closed so it’s nice to have a reliable online source.
This is the softest yarn I’ve ever worked with, truly created for a baby’s sensitive skin. I’m using it for a circular colorwork scarf, and while it’s a bit smooth for colorwork, it is super easy to work with and is creating an really soft, lighter weight fabric than other yarn I’ve used in the same way. The colors are super sweet and I’m enjoying pairing them in non-traditional ways on my project. Overall, I’m really really happy with this yarn for this project.
Love the yarn!
