Bérénice is a unique blend of extra-fine Angora goat fibres from South African farms committed to animal welfare and the soft, plump wool of our organic Merinos d'Arles, spun into loops around a strong, shiny silk yarn, then combed to give the desired tousled, voluminous look. 

The yarn is then dyed using ecological dyes that comply with GOTS specifications to reduce its environmental impact. We manufacture this very special yarn in Italy, near Biella.

ON THE NEEDLES

Bérénice was created to enrich the textures and colours of our yarns and open up new horizons for them. Combined with Ulysse and Gilliatt it makes them discreetly shiny and irresistibly soft.

Whether tone-on-tone or playing on more adventurous contrasts, these combinations add depth and a new sparkle to the palette of our yarns and make you want to rediscover them in a new range of projects and gauges.

It's also a beautiful lace yarn, very fluffy without being too hairy, which when knitted on its own creates a diaphanous, frothy material that's very inspiring.
