Gilliatt is a woollen-spun yarn from a new breed of white maco merinos descended from the Merino D’arles and Merino Rambouillet breeds. They are raised in the Alps of Haute-Provence, and their wool is blended with fleece from black merinos recently introduced in the Creuse.

The fleece of these Maco Merinos is carded and spun using traditional techniques and equipment at the Rougnat spinning mill, creating the soft and generous balls of Gilliatt and Ulysse wool.

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
