Yarn care

Handwash and dry flat, out of direct sunlight
Gilliatt is a 100% merino yarn made using a blend of white French Mérinos d’Arles (Provence) and black Portuguese merino (Alentejo Valley). It’s woollen spun, so the yarn is stretched when spun, which traps lots of air in the process. The result is a beautifully bouncy and elastic yarn with great volume that produces wonderfully warm, yet lightweight knits.
100% wool
Mulesing free
Natural fibres
Plastic free
Sustainably sourced

Gilliatt is a worsted-weight yarn that is super gentle and warm to the touch. Its soft texture and beautiful blend of natural colours make it a fantastic choice for cosy winter jumpers and accessories alike. Once knitted, it washes and wears beautifully, getting better and even softer as time goes on. Gilliatt truly is the ultimate combination of quality and sustainability.

 With a constant focus on traceability and reducing their environmental impact, Gilliatt is a testament to the care and respect De Rerum Natura gives to the animals and their wool. This sustainably sourced yarn is the perfect choice for the eco-conscious crafter with its short-circuit manufacturing process. The fleeces are sourced from France and Portugal, washed in Belgium or Italy and spun and dyed in France.

Please note that very dark or particularly saturated colours such as “émeraude” are more likely to bleed during blocking. If knitting dark colours alongside light ones we suggest knitting and washing a swatch first. Before drying your work andy excess dye in the water should be removed by repeating the rinse bath until the water is clear.

For UK delivery, we use Royal Mail’s Tracked 24 and Tracked 48 services. Provided goods are in stock, every effort will be made to dispatch your order the next day during shop opening hours, 1-3 days when the shop is closed.

To give you the best results we always check the dye lot numbers match within each order.  If for any reason it is not possible to complete your order using only one dye lot we will contact you as soon as possible.

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.
