Pricing patterns has always been one of the hardest parts of designing and I’ve often felt like the “standard” price of knitting patterns is both lower than other similar products (eg. indie sewing patterns) and doesn’t really reflect the amount of work that goes into them. At the same time, it’s totally fair to worry that rising pattern prices will price people out.
We are so pleased to introduce Gilliatt, the worsted weight version of Cyrano (Aran) and Ulysse (Sport). De Rerum Natura is a small yarn producer with a thoughtful approach to sourcing and raw materials. All the manufacturing stages are carried out in France, keeping processing and energy use to a minimum. The wool in each yarn line is a blend of French and European merino, produced in the most ecological way with concern for both the wellbeing of sheep and the environment.
