Laines du Nord Vasto
This 100% fine wool comes from lovingly raised ‘Gentile di Puglia’ sheep, a breed derived from cross-breeding local ewes with Merino rams first brought from Spain in the fifteenth century. After the Unification of Italy in the nineteenth century, they were cross-bred with French Rambouillet and German Merinolandschaf sheep. The result was high-quality fine wool with a fiber diameter of 18–22 microns. It has a slightly elastic and dry touch that creates zero pilling, making it ideal for all stitch work. It is also particularly suited to Fair-Isle stranded stitch-work and Nordic-style colorful pullover sweaters and cardigans.
