De Rerum Natura Candide is a woolen spun yarn of organic Merino from Arles and recycled carded cotton, which is twisted and dyed with natural dyes in France using chemical products according to REACH standards.
The presence of cotton in Candide's composition gives it a little more softness, a fresher feel and more compactness than its pure wool brother Ulysse. The small cotton flakes give it an original texture and create a mottled look, more or less pronounced depending on the colour. It is a rather dry yarn which, like many woolen spun yarns, gains in softness and fluffiness once washed.
