De Rerum Natura Berenice
Berenice by De Rerum Natura is a beautiful lace weight yarn. The core strand has a subtle sheen to it, giving the overall yarn a lovely shimmer.
Berenice would work well by itself for a translucent, ethereal look, or held together with another strand of yarn to give a fluffy halo to a project.
The silk content in this yarn makes it extremely soft, while the wool and mohair provide the beautiful fluff.
De Rerum Natura champions sustainability and transparency. This is reflected through every aspect of their business practices.
Based in France they specialise in European merino yarn. 50% of the merino wool comes from certified organic flocks raised by transhumance in the French Alps.
Transhumance is a type of pastoralism in which flocks are moved from one grazing ground to another flowing a seasonal cycle. It is still commonly practiced in the mountainous regions of France. The rest of their fleece is sources from small traditional farms chosen for their respect for animal welfare.
