Gilliatt is a woollen-spun yarn of soft French and European merino, ecologically produced in France in by De Rerum Natura.
The loftiness of the yarn makes it very versatile in terms of stitch gauge. Change your needle size to vary the gauge as follows (all numbers are approximate):
19 sts x 26 rows, with 4 mm needles
18 sts x 25 rows, with 4,5 mm needles
17 sts x 24 rows, with 5 mm needles
This versatility with gauge makes it an ideal substitute for US worsted weight yarns such as Brooklyn Tweed’s Shelter
