Each ball of yarn has a special story for you to discover. Meet the true champion of this cultural heritage through the QR code and the label on the yarn. You’ll see a section with a QR code, which you can use to access the wool’s traceability. The code tells you the origin of each thread and connects you to each shepherd, his flock and the heritage values that you’re helping to preserve by buying this wool.
Extensive transhumant ranching favours biodiversity, and plant pollination and growth, thanks to the manure. Sheep prevent pastures from becoming exhausted and clear scrubland, protecting it from devastating fires. Experts say biodiversity increases on land that is well managed through a shepherding culture.
