De Rerum Natura Ulysse is a fabulous ethically produced Merino wool which is a wire wool carded blend of French merino (Hautes Alpes Region & Provences Arles ) and European Merino (Portugal). The sheep are raised in the most environmentally friendly way possible for the animals and the recovery of their wool. All manufacturing stages are carried out in France with constant concern for limiting treatment and energy expenditure.
Ulysee is spun in two plies and is a light yarn, soft and delicately fluffy that will be perfect for fair isle, fine twists or highlight a beautifully rustic lace. It comes in natural colours from the mixture of brown and white fleeces and dyed colours on the natural base which is a mix of brown and white giving it a lovely rich depth.
