DROPS Belle is made from a carefully balanced mix of cotton viscose and linen fibers. The result is a yarn that breathes well, has an exquisite texture and shine, and is awesome to wear all-year round directly on the skin.
Part of Yarn Group B, this yarn is a great alternative to make patterns designed in other DK weight yarns. It's a luxurious yarn for your Spring and Summertime patterns.

I have used Drops Belle for a number of projects. I ordered this deep Navy blue color along with the Beige color #9 to make a v-neck sweater with wide stripes and it is a sophisticated looking combination! I love Belle because I live in Tucson, AZ and it is rarely cool enough for a DK weight wool sweater. Because the Belle comes in some beautiful rich shades that can be worn any season it is truly a winner for me. I also love Nordic Marts quick shipping!!! I ordered my yarn last Sunday and it arrived on Wednesday. It was like Christmas when I opened my box! If you would like to see any of my Drops Belle projects, I am "heidiho" on Ravelry!
