Your skein's story
Your skein's story
In Chilean Patagonia dedicated sheep farmers with +30 years of experience produce the highest quality wool. The sheep live in free-range grasslands that conserve the soil and protect local ecosystems and biodiversity. Our products are 100%mulesing-free. In Chilean Patagonia sheep live in constant rain and wind, and far away from big cities allowing you to enjoy exquisite, soft, fine, and white wool free of pollution and animal cruelty.
Our wool is hand-washed and spun on a small scale by expert artisans in natural fibers in the city of Talca and llay Llay.
At our headquarters, the skeins are hand-dyed with GOTs certified ecological dyes free of heavy metals to take care of your skin, those you love, and the environment. Our vibrant semi-solid colors will stand out and in your needles will produce unique soft, gentle, and lively garments.
Your skeins are produced under semi-industrial processed and several steps are carried out by hand. We want you to know it is possible that you find small pieces of vegetable matters and sand in your yarn. These comes from the Chilean Patagonia and are retained in the wool after the washing and machine-spinning process. (Did we tell you that the sheep like to play on on sand banks? 🤭).
Our yarns are machine spun at a semi-industrial scale and it is possible you find some irregularities in the torsion and thickness of the yarns. We like it like that. We know it happens very sparsely and do not want to generate additional waste and it give personality and texture making each garments truly unique.
Your skeins are hand dyed to active semi-solid and variagated coloreways. As such there will be variation among skeins of the same and different dying baths. We would like to suggest you to buy all skeins needed for your project at the same time and mixed them while knitting to avoid pooling in your garments. Or not mixed them if you like the pooling color patterns 😀
