ORGANIC, ETHICAL TREATMENT OF ANIMALS:

This wool comes from a small farm in the semi-urban area of São Martinho do Bispo near Coimbra, whose owners I am friends with. Visiting often, I am familiar with their handling of the animals and their feeding.

These sheep have access to wide open spaces and feed on grass and oranges that fall from the many trees all over the farm (see last picture) - orange trees have fruit almost all year in Portugal. They have access to a creek that runs through the property and also proper barn facilities.


This is a great alternative if you are concerned with industrial methods and exploitations and want to know your wool comes from some pretty happy sheep!


For exact combined shipping costs, please contact me! I would be happy to check them for you.

Note that all monitors display colours differently. If you have any questions feel free to convo me! Obrigada!
