  • De Rerum Natur Robinson

    5 items left

    Robinson is made from Merino d'Arles wool and recycled cotton. The addition of cotton brings softness and a fresh summer vibe to this light-worsted-weight yarn. As well as an interesting texture and mottled appearance. It feels dry to the hand but will bloom and soften more after washing.

    De Rerum Natura has created a palette of eleven colours. The range was achieved using natural plant extracts (indigo, chestnut, reseda, madder and cochineal) selected for their shade and strength. The dyed and unbleached yarns are mixed to create the colour range according to the chosen blends and then woolen spun.

    Robinson is recommended to be knit on a 4 - 4.5mm needle for a gauge of around 20 sts for 28 rows. It is ideal for textured stitches but also brings a lovely natural, and relaxed touch to stocking and garter stitch. It can be used for a wide range of patterns written for worsted or heavy DK yarns.
