Ulysse from De Rerum Natura
Ulysse is, like its big brother Gilliatt, a woolen spun yarn made from a blend of white French Mérinos d'Arles (Provence) and black Portuguese merino (Alentejo valley) raised with a concern for the well-being of the animals and the valorisation 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.
It is available in natural colors resulting from the mixture of brown and white fleeces and in a palette of subtly mottled dyed colors.
Ulysses is named after the hero of the "Odyssey" who fell in love with Penelope.

Hand wash recommended in lukewarm water with a mild detergent. Dry flat (dryer prohibited).
Please note that very dark or particularly saturated colours such as "émeraude" are more likely to bleed during blocking. If you plan to knit with lighter colours, we recommend that you test a swatch first. If you find excess dye in the first wash, we recommend that you repeat the rinse bath until it is clear before drying your work.
Each dye lot is unique. Please purchase enough yarn to complete your project.
We try hard to capture the essence of each colorway, but please keep in mind that colors may vary from monitor to monitor.
