Affordable luxury with a conscience.

DROPS prices may be low but their yarn quality is high! As Northern Europe's largest brand of hand knitting yarns and designs, they have unique opportunities to work with the very best raw materials.

All the Merino wool in the DROPS yarns has its origins in South America, coming from free-range sheep that have not been subject to Mulesing.

DROPS also choose to leave a majority of their alpaca and wool fibres untreated – this means that the fibres have been simply washed without the use of chemicals before they are dyed, reducing their environmental impact and preserving the beautiful, natural appearance and texture characteristics of the fibres.
