C’est magnifique! It’s the fabulous French style and on trend designs that keep us hooked on Bergère de France - gorgeous textures, shapes and techniques in a fantastic range of affordable yarns that we just can’t resist.
Bergère (that’s French for shepherdess) de France has been producing amazing yarn for over 76 years, and is the proud operator of one of the most beautiful, traditional mills in Europe, based in Lorraine. They were one of the first mills to produce yarns from fibers they recycle themselves, now offering Recyclaine, Recycline, and Recyclé 4.
The raw fibers they use come from fiber giants like Uruguay, South Africa, Turkey, and Egypt - not forgetting closer to home producers Italy, Portugal and Germany, and native fiber from France, too.
