Gilliatt is a soft, round yarn made from carded wool from 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.
Made up of three twisted strands, it is a round, soft yarn which is perfect for about everything from simple stocking stitch to intricate cables.
It's a yarn that easily forgives irregularities, doesn't split and stays securely on the needles, making it an excellent choice for beginners or more experienced knitters/crocheters
Gilliatt is named after the beautiful, stubborn and constructive hero of Victor Hugo's Travailleurs de la mer.
