De Rerum Natura Bérénice
Bérénice is a unique blend of extra-fine Angora goat fibres South Africa and the soft, plump wool of our organic Merinos d'Arles, spun into loops around a strong, shiny silk yarn, then combed to give the desired tousled, voluminous look.
The yarn is then dyed in Italy using ecological dyes that comply with GOTS specifications to reduce its environmental impact.
Bérénice was created to enrich the textures and colours of their other yarns and open up new horizons for them. Whether tone-on-tone or playing on more adventurous contrasts, these combinations add depth and a new sparkle to the palette and allow for a new range of projects and gauges.
It's also a beautiful lace yarn, very fluffy without being too hairy, which when knitted on its own creates a diaphanous, frothy material that's very inspiring.
