Rosy Green Organic Wool

Rosy Green Organic Wool

We are delighted to add another yarn that is 100% organic GOTs certified to our growing group of organic yarns. Rosy Green Wool Merino d‘Arles is 100% French Organic Merino. The Merino D’Arles is a specialty sheep originating from the Alpine meadows of France; often considered to yield the finest Merino wools in Europe.

During the winter the flocks stay in the valleys of France, where there’s plenty to graze and they’re safe from mountain conditions. As it gets hotter, and the grazing thins, the shepherds walk their flocks to high mountain pastures.
This 5 day walk, to over 2000m passes through local towns and villages, the numbers of sheep swelling as more flocks join along the way. This hardy breed then stay in the high regions until the weather starts to turn, before they are once again led back to the valleys.

This beautiful Sportweight yarn has been developed in collaboration with Melanie Berg and Loop is the exclusive London stockist.

The yarn is sold in 50 gram skeins that has a 200 metre (218 yards) put up. It is good value for an Organic Yarn. Perfect for large jumpers.

Melanie Berg has designed a few stunning shawls with this beautiful yarn.
