Cyrano is a thick, soft, round yarn made from carded wool, a mixture of French Arles merino (Provence) and Portuguese black merino raised with respect for the sheep and the environment.
All the manufacturing stages of this yarn are carried out in Europe (France and Portugal for sourcing, Belgium and Italy for washing, France for spinning and dyeing) with traceability and with low impact on the environment. It is offered in natural colours resulting from the mixture of brown and white fleeces, and in a range of subtly dyed colours.
The yarn is made from five strands giving a roundness to the yarn and good stitch definition.
It is the perfect yarn for quick and satisfying projects such as hats, scarves or blankets, warm cardigans, and it is great for kids sweaters!
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.
