Take the lustrous, long, bright and very high quality hair of the Angora goat; the fine, soft and elastic wool of the merino sheep; the sumptuous wool of the Mongolian yak; add silk and combine it all with Pascuali´s years of experience in developing high quality natural yarns and you have: Manada.
We named this very special yarn Manada (which is the Spanish word used to refer to a group of animals) because it is, after all, a rare blend of fibres from different natural sources. It is a yarn not found anywhere else in the market today!
Because we have very high standards for where we source our fibres, we have made sure that the merino we use is RWS (Responsible Wool Standard) certified. The standard ensures that wool suppliers use rigorous, ethical and sustainable sourcing practices. It is, therefore, mulesing free and of superfine quality.
