Saber Fazer

Manta yarn is spun from the wool of Serra da Estrela sheep, and is traditionally used to weave wool throws, that are then carded or felted.

Being a single ply yarn, with a very rustic feel, it is more suitable for weaving than for knitting, especially if it is to be carded or felted afterwards.
It comes in 6 beautiful shades of earth and blue, including the natural white that, being 100% wool, can easily be hand dyed.
This yarn is very natural and low on processing, not having been subject to chemical treatments.
