Pegulhal is a breed specific yarn made of Bordaleira da Serra da Estrela and portuguese Merino (native Portuguese sheep breeds). Pegulhal is made from the wool of free range sheep as mulesing is not practiced in Portugal. It is grown, scoured, milled and dyed in Portugal and is not bleached and non superwash.
This is a beautiful fingering weight yarn for fiber crafters who like non superwash wooly yarns, dyed in the wool and ideal for stranded knitting projects. Pegulhal will bloom and soften considerably after being washed. We recommend washing and blocking your swatch to determine gauge.
Retrosaria Rosa Pomar makes minimally processed, heritage wool yarns from Portugal. Their yarns are created in collaboration with small manufacturers, breeders associations, and shepherds. All Rosa Pomar yarns are non-superwash, not bleached, have no silicone based softeners, and mulesing is not practiced in Portugal.
