This knitting yarn comes from merino d'Arles sheep that graze in the French alpine valleys. 100% traceable thanks to its very short circuit, this wool is combed and spun in northern Italy and dyed by hand with plants, here in our dyeing workshop in Isère.
Soft, shiny and very resistant, this yarn is ideal for all kind of work from shawls to baby clothes, including sweaters and hats. Merino d'Arles is a very regular yarn that will be perfect for cables and textured stitches.
