De Rerum Natura is a small yarn producer with a thoughtful approach to sourcing and raw materials. All the manufacturing stages are performed 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.
Gilliatt is a woollen spun 3 ply worsted weight yarn. All three yarns come in the same range of rich natural and dyed colours. Naturally white and brown merino, sourced from France and Portugal, are combined to create the soft, heathered neutrals and then overdyed for the vibrant heathered colours. Due to its woollen spin, this yarn is light and airy; the open structure traps heat for surprising warmth. The rounded 3-ply structure is our favourite for thick 3-dimensional cables but it also shines in stranded colourwork and simple knit purl texture patterns.
Handwash in warm (not hot) water with gentle soap. Lay fabric flat to air dry.
