Pure organic linen (from France)

Antigone is the first plant based yarn by de Rerum Natura! Composed of ten strands of combed flax well twisted, its hand is smooth, silky and deliciously fresh. 

It can be knitted with fine needles for a regular result or with larger needles to take advantage of its natural drape which allows it to adapt to a large number of patterns. It will be perfect for knitting summer layette, mid-season sweaters and little tops for sunny days, a little lace cardigan to go with a pretty dress or even pick up a shopping bag! Particularly resistant, linen likes to be washed and worn; it will become more and more soft over time and you can enjoy your favorite sweater many seasons.

This yarn has been spun in Poland from flax grown in France respecting the standards of organic farming. It has been then twisted, dyed, put in balls and tagged in France in Creuse.

A word from the woman behind de Rerum Natura, Solenn Couix-Loarer:

MAKING A MORE BEAUTIFUL WORLD
“I dreamt of using and clothing my children with beautiful and quality yarn. I wanted to believe that we didn’t have to close our eyes on the unknown sources of yarn, on its disastrous carbon footprint and the questionable breeding conditions of sheep in order to enjoy the exquisite sensation of smooth thread on our needles. I’ve met breeders and industrial yarn makers bursting with ideas to work and create differently. So in times when words fail to bring transformation, maybe our hands, our hearts and our minds can help build another world…

GILLIATT, ULYSSE, PÉNÉLOPE and the others…
These are ethical and environmentally friendly yarns, beautiful and soft to knit with and also to wear. They have been created to reinvent local yarn and shape a future where there will be more sheep in our mountains, small and flourishing yarn mills in our towns and countryside and a diverse population of happy knitters…”
