Fabel will bring the best colors to your knitting and crochet. Knit socks with fun jacquard, with stripes, in solids, or with spray prints. Knit sweaters with amazing color-work designs. This ultra popular yarn is easy to work with and easy to care for. This yarn is really great for adding color to kid's items.
This is fabulous yarn for socks. Good tension, doesn't split...perfection. Highly recommend!

I used with Alpaca for socks and am very pleased with how they turned out. Easy to work with on small needles. Plan to purchase more.

I ordered 3 skeins of Fabel to crochet socks using a Drops pattern. The color is a nice cream shade and the texture is average, not scratchy and not soft.
When I pulled yarn from the center of the first skein I was greeted by some very tight knots. The first yard or so was very kinked and separated so I bypassed it. The pattern called for just a 2 (mm hook and as I tried to crochet the yarn continued to split to the point that I decided to look for another pattern that uses a larger hook. I hope that will solve the problem.
I'm not sure if I will order Fabel in the future.

Great for socks and mittens
I use two strands of this and another color for fingerless "texting" mittens. My only complaint is that each ball, so far, had a knot in it.
Seems the DROPS yarns are made in EU. Where is EU?
