Woolia - New sustainable merino yarn for needle size 4-6mm
Sheep & lambs mainly graze between fruit and olive trees on organic plantations and on extensive areas.
Woolia is spun from the wool from lambs and sheep of an original gl. Italian merino breed, Merino Gentile Puglia.
This breed lived and now lives in a smaller local area around Puglia, in Italy. Puglia is the sheep's original habitat and therefore the sheep stay naturally healthy much easier. That kind of sheep farming and their grazing is the most sustainable production of wool. It is environmentally friendly and provides the best living conditions for the sheep and the sheep breeders.
