Our Signature Yarn
Our signature yarn is made exclusively for us at an Italian spinning mill using mulesing-free, 100% pure new wool sourced from Corriedale sheep in Patagonia and Uruguay. Corriedales were first bred in New Zealand 150 years ago when Scottish sheep farmer James Little deliberately bred Merino and Lincoln sheep to create a more robust and all-purpose animal that produces high quality long-fibred wool.
The wool is carefully cleansed and worsted to remove broken and short fibres. We then give it an extra spin to create a denser, more durable yarn that is far less likely to pill. Finally, the yarn is dyed at our spinning mill in northern Italy using a reactive dye that meets the highest European environmental standards.
