New knitting yarn from De Rerum Natura - Robinson Organic Merino and recycled carded cotton blend with natural dyed colors. Like the other DRN favorite Gilliatt merino yarn, Robinson is a rounded lofty DK to light worsted weight 3-ply yarn of 250m (270yds) per 100g ball, with lots of character and natural feel.
Robinson is at its best in textured stitches but also brings a very nice natural and relaxed touch to stockinette and garter. It can be used for a wide range of patterns written for worsted or heavy DK yarns. Non-Superwash treated Robinson is an ideal yarn for mid-season projects that will benefit from the lightness of wool and the coolness of cotton.
We love the soft pastel colors created for Robinson. Colors are mixed with naturally dyed wool, unbleached undyed wool and recycled cotton, gives Robinson the fresh feel and original mottled look. To create this palette, part of the wool is dyed with natural plant extracts (indigo, chestnut, reseda, madder and cochineal) selected for their shade and strength. The dyed and unbleached yarns are then mixed to create the colour range according to the chosen blends and then woolen spun.
Wool blend Robinson is spun and dyed in France. The yarn is made from the wool of Arles merinos raised in organic farming in Provence and from cotton recycled on the spot by the spinning mill thanks to a patented technique that preserves the length of the fibres.
70% Organic merino d'Arles (France) and 30% recycled cotton, included 2% of others recycled fibres (France)
