Woolia is a new yarn, spun from lamb's and sheep's wool of an originalItalian breed, called Merino Gentile. This breed lives in a small local area around Puglia, Italy, where it is bred following the most sustainable practices. The sheep breeders source the wool themselves and sell it directly to Gepard's spinning mill. This way, the farmer gets a better price for the wool, and the product can be traced down to the individual flock.
Woolia is soft and durable. Perfect for cables or Fair Isle knitting. The first time you feel the wool, you may find it a little dry. This is typical of this kind of merino and that is also what makes it super light and makes garments knitted with it keep their shape.
