  • De Rerum Natura Ulysse

    Ulysse is a woolen spun yarn made from a blend of white French Mérinos d'Arles (Provence) and black Portuguese merino (Alentejo Valley). It is a light, soft and delicately fluffy yarn, perfect for fair isle and colourwork but also delicate cables or enhancing a beautifully rustic lace.

    A true European yarn, the fleeces came from France and Portugal. They are washed in Belgium or Italy, with the final spinning and dyeing done in France.

    Ulysse is offered in natural colours from the blend of brown and white fleeces and in a range of subtly heathered and dyed fleece colours.

    This yarn is not superwash-treated. We recommend you wash your knitted fabric in warm water with soap or a suitable detergent and leave it to dry flat, avoiding rubbing or stretching it. If you wish to test the wool programme of your washing machine, we advise you to do so first with your sample.
