Say hello to Ulysse, a sustainably sourced European yarn made from a blend of white French Mérinos d’Arles (Provence) and black Portuguese merino (Alentejo valley). De Rerum Natura’s manufacturing process takes place in a short circuit as the  fleeces are taken to be washed in Belgium or Italy before the final spinning and dyeing is completed in France. This ensures complete traceability and minimal environmental impact, making Ulysse the perfect choice for the eco-conscious crafter. This sport weight yarn has a gloriously soft texture and is available in a beautiful blend of natural colours making it a stunning choice for a range of both knitting and weaving projects.

Ulysse is a woollen spun yarn, which means that the yarn isn’t smoothed or combed when spun as per worsted yarns, but stretched out instead, trapping lots of air in the process. As a result, it is a voluminous yarn with a lovely bounce and elasticity to it – a winning combination for warm, yet lightweight knitted garments and accessories. As it has such a rounded structure, this sport weight yarn is a lovely choice for fair isle and colourwork, but also works well for showing off textured stitches such as cables in a knitted jumper, or delicate lace work in a shawl.

De Rerum Natura hold transparency and sustainability at the heart of their business and as such, Ulysse is a testament to the care and respect given to the animals and their wool, with a constant focus on traceability and an awareness of reducing its impact on the environment throughout the whole production process.

Crafted with the finest materials and ethical production, Ulysse offers the ultimate combination of quality and sustainability. The wool used in production is also mulesing free so you know that when you pick Ulysse for your next knitting project, you are joining us in supporting a more sustainable, and kinder future, one stitch at a time.

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.
