Vovó (Portuguese for Grandma) is a versatile and hard wearing non-superwash yarn made entirely from fine Portuguese wool, mainly from Campaniça sheep. It is a great choice for sweaters and cardigans intended for daily wear.
Vovó is made from the wool of free range sheep; mulesing is not practiced in Portugal.
Grown, scoured, milled and dyed in Portugal.
Shades 01, 20 and 40 are not dyed. Like all Retrosaria yarns, Vovó is non-superwash and not bleached.
