affordable, stury, soft

I've used Drops Lima a couple times now and really like it. It seems very sturdy, is soft enough to wear next to skin, has minimal pilling, and is not super expensive. It knits up best on size 6 needles for me. I definitely would use it again.

Great yarn

This yarn is wonderful. Knits up beautifully, nice tight ribbing and maintains its shape. Very easy to knit. I used #6 bamboo needles and I am knitting fingerless gloves and I am so pleased with the results. Just placed a second order because I am so pleased with the yarn and the great price.
