DROPS Muskat is a 100% mercerized cotton yarn available in a wide range of colors. Being mercerized, this yarn has a subtle shine that will make your cotton garments look more elegant and with a satinated feel.
Mercerization in a chemical process that cotton undergoes to make it more resistant. In this process, the cotton not only becomes stronger but also gets the ability to absorb the pigments better in the dyeing process. Which is the reason why mercerized cottons like DROPS Muskat have more vivid and saturated colors, an ideal feature for amigurumis or children's clothes. But the first thing that tells us that a thread is mercerized is its characteristic shine that reflects the light so well in our projects.
Another advantage of DROPS Muskat is that being a mercerized yarn it is much more twisted. This means that the multiple thin strands that it is spun from do not split when knitting or inserting the crochet hook, a feature that makes this yarn ideal for beginners.
Also, DROPS Muskat is made from Egyptian cotton, the cotton variety with the longest fiber. The longer the fibers of the cotton with which it is spun, the finer, softer, more flexible and resistant the resulting thread is, and therefore the projects that you make with it.
The combination of Egyptian cotton with the mercerization process makes of DROPS Muskat a perfect cotton yarn both for knitting delicate garments for women with lots of drape, children's sweaters that hold up very well to daily use and washing, and colorful toys or amigurumis that have a defined and uniform stitch.
To knit a jumper for a 7 year old child you will need about 6 yarn balls of DROPS Muskat. For an adult t-shirt you will need about 8 yarn balls. Remember that this is only an approximation and that your own measurements, tension swatch, chosen stitch pattern,... may vary the calculation.
This yarn from Garnstudio, the manufacturer of the DROPS yarns, is made in the European Union and has been on the market for more than 25 years, which can give you an idea of its quality and how it is liked by knitters worldwide.
