Pastoreta (little shepherdess in catalan) is a 100%wool fingering weigh yarn, non superwash and plastic free. It is a specific breed yarn made from Ripollesa sheep wool, an endangered sheep breed from Catalonia.
It is made locally: the wool is sourced in Catalonia (north-east of Spain), then we send it to the north-west of Spain, were the last scouring mills of the Iberian Peninsula fight to survive, and finally it come back to Catalonia to be spun and dyed.
Pastoreta is a 2ply yarn and it’s structure make it perfect for any purpose: stockinette, lace, cables, stranded knitting… Although it is a fingering weight yarn, it also works well with knits designed for light fingering and sport.
Hand wash and dry flat.
