French Chic Is Here: Bergere Yarns

Sep 27, 2012

A note from Kathleen: From time to time, I get information about new products that I think Knitting Daily readers will be interested in. This time, it's a new yarn—Pur Merinos Français from Bergère de France.

Pure Merino wool, 100% French

Soft and strong, Pur Merinos Français yarn is 100% natural, sourced from local farmers from the Arles region in the South of France.

Bergère de France's partnership with these sheep farmers ensures the protection of the French Merino breed and allows Bergère de France to bring you this fabulously soft and beautifully regular yarn.

Our New Partner—The Arles Merino Sheep

Bergère de France has developed an exclusive partnership with a group of French sheep farmers. Together, they have a common goal: to protect and encourage the breeding of the invaluable Arles Merino breed.

Arles Merino wool is incredibly soft and fine. Because of its naturally fine and even crimp, it is a very bouncy wool that makes wonderful yarn for hand knitting.

Soft and strong, Pur Merinos Français yarn is 100% natural. The regular, springy fibers of Pur Merinos Français make it both hardwearing and easy on sensitive skin.

I am trying to find a pattern from Bergere Magazine Issue # 166. Any suggestions as to where I can purchase it?. Tried to find it at their site, which is awful to navigate and no luck.

Thanks. Arivel

This is wonderful to see you promoting this lovely well established European knitting source.

Let's have some more of their ideas and patterns?

It has been far too long since they have been in the publics eye and mind.

Too bad they don't have this breed of sheep in North America.

This is very interesting to hear about a particular heritage breed of sheep and the properties of the fleece and yarn derived from it.  

Thank goodness some folk are preserving these old breeds.
