Hard wearing as only a sock yarn can be, DROPS Fabel is a 4 stranded yarn and is superwash treated, which makes it machine washable and easy to care for. Compared to regular sock yarns, DROPS Fabel is spun in a softer wool quality, which makes it an amazing all-round yarn, suitable for far more than socks – try it for baby garments!
Both print and long print colours in DROPS Fabel are produced with a method called “fancy dyeing” that differs from other methods in that each dye lot has small variations in both pattern and nuance. This is not an error, but an element of the yarn’s character.
