Hi everyone! Long time no post, but I have a great pleasure to share with you a new local yarn, Albertine by De Rerum Natura.
In a recent post about my ultimate local yarn, I “declared” that I tried to prefer European yarns. This principle is often shaken by beautiful photos of hand-dyed yarns on SNS, and I allow myself from time to time not to observe it because I’m not a sort of “radical” person, but I tried to keep it as often as possible. And I was recently faced with a dilemma I hadn’t expected.
As all fibrephiles, I love hand-dyed yarns for their nuanced or vivid colors, variation of tones, softness, for all in short, and especially those from Malabrigo or Madelinetosh.
But I should say that the Americas are far away from France!
In my real life, we eat “local” and French as much as possible (we’re a member of community supported agriculture association) and for a while now, I try to apply this principle to yarn purchase preferring European yarns.
