A very special merino yarn from Spain. Minimally processed and from happy sheep who live on small farms and are mulesing-free. The sheep are moved seasonally in a pastoral tradition called transhumance.
Rustica is an aran weight yarn that blooms to a lofty, warm fabric. As these yarns are minimally processed from sheep that are allowed to wander, it is not uncommon to find bits of vegetable matter still in the yarn.
In accordance with dLana's environmentally conscious efforts, Rustica is not superwash.
