The Pantone color of the year is Classic Blue, so this week we are featuring a classic blue from one of our most popular yarn companies – de rerum natura. (We also have a fresh restock of this yarn in the store this week)!
From Pantone: “Instilling calm, confidence, and connection, this enduring blue hue highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.”
L’heure Bleue by de rerum natura is a medium indigo blue that is available in Ulysse and Gilliatt, as of this season! This small ecologically-friendly yarn company from the south of France creates transparently produced, ethically sourced yarns with a minimal ecological footprint. White and black wool from French Merino d’Arles and Portuguese Petra Merino sheep is blended and spun semi-woolen to create wonderfully lofty yarns in beautiful heathered hues – seen beautifully in this blue colorway.
The yarns seen here:
- Gilliatt – worsted weight 3-ply semi-woolen spun French & Portuguese Merino – 273 yds/100 g, $16
- Ulysse – sport weight 2-ply semi-woolen spun French & Portuguese Merino wool – 202 yds/50 g, $8.50
