Drifter is one of our shop staples! It has a gorgeously soft texture and a massive range of self-striping colours.
Drifter's sister lines include:
King Cole Drifter for Baby DK: a range of pastel variegated colourways.
King Cole Drifter Subtle DK: a range of solid colours with a gentle marl.
It's best used for plain garments like jumpers and cardigans, any cables or lace will easily get lost in the stripes. The stripes lay themselves out best at garment widths, although thicker stripes still look totally gorgeous for hats and scarves etc. Also, the massive yardage and great price make it a great option for bigger pieces without breaking the bank. The formula is the same as the Drifter for Baby line, just different colours, making this a great option for people with sensitive skin. It does have a little wool, but in small enough quantities it should be suitable for pretty much anyone.
