Pénélope is a 6 ply, worsted spun yarn made from precious fleece of Merinos d'Arles, raised in organic farming near Aureille in Provence (France) and a touch of silk (south of Shanghai, China).
The silk gives this fine (21.5 microns) and exceptionally elastic wool a discreetly satiny sheen and a very nice drape. Just the right amount of silk to make each stitch a soft little luxury...
The result is a harmonious yarn, round and strong, soft and subtly satiny. Its softness, drape and definition make it perfect for knitting layette, a slightly precious jumper and anything else you want to wear next to your skin.
