Materials This product is knitted in Italy from the undyed grey wool of the Gotland sheep, a domestic breed named for the Swedish island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea. Their wool is coarse but silky and naturally curly, producing a beautifully light fluffy yarn that is known to be exceptionally warm and lustrous. Keeping sheep has a long tradition on Gotland. The animals do well on rough pastures, grazing on bushes, leaves and wild herbs, and contribute to improving biodiversity and conserving the island’s rugged terrain. There are still a few workshops and craftsmen who keep the local tradition alive but most of the wool, which needs to be sheared regularly, is destroyed due to low demand. To support small family-owned farms and save this premium-quality material from going to waste, we are introducing a limited collection of timeless knits made from 100% Gotland wool.
