Cyrano from De Rerum Natura
Cyrano is a large, soft, round yarn made from carded wool from a mixture of French Arles merino (Provence) and Portuguese black merino raised with a concern for the well-being of the animals and the recovery of their wool.
All the manufacturing stages of this yarn are carried out in a short circuit (Belgium or Italy for washing, France for spinning, twisting and dyeing) with a constant desire for traceability and reduction of its impact on the environment.
Its five strand composition gives it a lot of roundness and enhances spectacularly the patterns and twists while keeping the characteristic swelling of carded yarns.
It is the perfect yarn for quick and satisfying projects such as hats, cosy scarves or a nice soft blanket, but also for knitting big warm cardigans that can be used as mid-season coats and children's jumpers that are particularly resistant to the vicissitudes of the playground!
It is available in natural colors resulting from the mixture of brown and white fleeces and in a palette of subtly mottled dyed colors.
Cyrano is named after the poet-inventor-dreamer, author of the Etats et Empires du Soleil et de la Lune and hero of Edmond Rostand's eponymous play.
