Gilliatt is a woolen spun yarn made from a blend of white French Mérinos d'Arles (Provence) and black Portuguese merino (Alentejo valley) raised with a concern for the well-being of the animals and the valorisation of their wool.

All the manufacturing stages of this yarn are carried out in a short circuit (France and Portugal for sourcing, Belgium or Italy for washing, France for spinning and dyeing) with a constant desire for traceability and to reduce its impact on the environment.

It is offered in natural colours resulting from the blend of brown and white fleeces ("sel" (salt), "poivre blanc" (white pepper), "poivre et sel" (pepper and salt) and "poivre" (pepper)), and in a range of subtly heathered and dyed in fleece colours.

On the needles:
Made up of three well-twisted strands, it is a round, soft and satisfying fluffy yarn which is perfect for just about everything from ocean of jersey to intricate cables. It's a yarn that easily forgives irregularities, doesn't split and stays securely on the needles, making it an excellent choice for beginners as well.
