Drops Baby Merino is a light, soft yarn especially well suited for baby items or for those with sensitive skin. The yarn is a delight to work with although if you have a hook with a pointed tip, you may find that the yarn splits a little, nothing major though.

My stitches came out well defined and even with the resulting swatch having a nice heft without being too bulky. The yarn has a slight stretch to it which helps keep up with the frequent movements of babies.

Because the yarn is super-wash, it stands up well to being washed in the washing machine so busy parents don’t have to worry about hand washing or possibly ruining the item in the machine.

Baby Merino Example

Baby Merino is available in 21 colors, mostly pastel, but also with a some darker colors availalbe (which I like since I don’t always like to use pastels with baby items). Keep an eye out in a future issue for a pattern featuring this yarn.
