Ulysse is, like its big brother Gilliatt, 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 appreciation of their wool. 

All the manufacturing stages of this yarn are carried out in a short distance (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 colors 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-the-fleece colors. 

Made up of two well-twisted strands, it is a light, soft and delicately fluffy yarn which is perfect for fair isle and colorwork but also for drawing delicate cables or enhancing a beautifully rustic lace.
