Albertine is a beautiful 4 ply yarn imported from France and available exclusively in the US at fibre space. It is a worsted spun organic yarn made from precious fleece of Merinos d’Arles, raised respectfully in Provence France and luxorious silk from south of Shanghai, China. Is a round, strong and very soft yarn with great elasticity and beautiful drape. It is perfect for baby items, shawls and all projects you want to wear close to the skin. Albertine is named after the feminine character of À la recherche du temps perdu by Marcel Proust.
