  • De Rerum Natura Pénélope

    Indulge in the luxurious softness of Pénélope, a wool-silk blend produced by De Rerum Natura. This yarn is exceptionally soft and elastic, with a subtle satiny sheen and beautiful drape. The fine fibres are combed into a ribbon for increased softness and strength, spun in Italy, and dyed in France.

    Pénélope is perfect for knitting baby clothing and elegant jumpers, and it is a delight to knit with. It's not superwash treated, so we recommend hand washing your knitted fabric in warm water with soap or a suitable detergent. If you wish to test the wool program of your machine, we advise you to do so first with your sample.

    Pénélope is named after the feminine character in the Odyssey of Homer. With its exceptional softness and drape, Pénélope is the perfect choice for creating beautiful and comfortable knitwear. Whether you're a seasoned knitter or starting your knitting adventure, you'll love working with this luxurious yarn.
