De Rerum Natura Ulysse

Receiving a new yarn at Black Sheep Yarns is always exciting, but we are especially thrilled to tell you about our newest addition. Ulysse, by De Rerum Natura, is a woolen spun yarn made from a blend of white French Mérinos d'Arles (Provence) and black Portuguese merino (Alentejo valley) raised with a concern for the well-being of the animals. 

The manufacturing stages of this yarn are carried out in France and Portugal for sourcing, Belgium and Italy for washing, and France for spinning and dyeing, with a constant commitment to traceability and reducing environmental impact.

It is offered in natural colours resulting from the blend of brown and white fleeces ("sel" (salt), "poivre blanc" (white pepper), "poivre et sel" (pepper and salt) and "poivre" (pepper)), and in a range of subtly heathered and dyed in fleece colours. 

Made up of two well-twisted strands, it is a light, soft and delicately fluffy yarn which is perfect for fair isle and colourwork but also for drawing delicate cables or enhancing a beautifully rustic lace. 

We have started with 35 of their beautiful colours, with more to come.
