Yarn care

Handwash in lukewarm water with a gentle wool soap. Dry flat away from direct sunlight.
Robinson by De Rerum Natura is a wonderful interseasonal yarn made using a blend of organic Merino d’Arles wool from Provence and cotton from t-shirts, which are recycled on the spot by the spinning mill in France. The addition of cotton alongside the organic merino wool results in a lovely softness and lightness, which lends itself well to more spring/summer knitting projects.  Part of the wool is dyed with natural plant extracts (indigo, chestnut, reseda, madder and cochineal) all selected for their shade and strength. This is then mixed with the unbleached yarns to create Robinson’s unique texture and gentle, mottled colour palette.

Robinson is a light worsted weight yarn that can be used for a range of knitting and crochet projects requiring a worsted or heavy DK. It combines the bouncy lightness of wool with the coolness of cotton, which is excellent for those mid-season knits where it’s too hot for a woollen jumper but not quite warm enough for bare arms! We think Robinson is particularly great for patterns with textured stitches but works equally well for those simple stitches, too.

This is a yarn which blooms and softens after washing leaving you with a relaxed knitted fabric that is a delight to wear.

Robinson is a testament to the care and respect De Rerum Natura show the animals and their wool with a constant focus on traceability and reducing their impact on the environment. It’s a high quality, sustainably sourced yarn worthy of a place in the stash on any eco-conscious crafter.

About De Rerum Natura

Translated from French to English as ‘the nature of things’, De Rerum Natura was created by Solenn Couix-Loarer as a response to knowing nothing about the yarns she was using to knit for her children. Her beautiful wool brand combines the ethics and traceability of country wools with a luxurious softness to produce a range of yarns that are a pleasure to knit with and to wear. All of De Rerum Natura bases are made using a blend of French and European merino, all raised and sheared with the utmost care and respect. Each and every ball they create is mulesing free, ethically sourced and sustainably produced so you can enjoy working on your knitting projects with absolute peace of mind.
