We are so thrilled to offer Retrosaria yarn. Rosa Pomar and her team are making special yarns with preservation of heritage sheep and sustainability front and center. At Verb, we love knitting with yarns that have a story, and a transparent supply chain, so we love Retrosaria yarns.

Mungo is made entirely from waste generated by Portuguese and/or Spanish spinning mills. Both the cotton and the wool come from this pre-consumer waste, we love that this yarn is sustainable and the way that the cotton provides a light fleck to this yarn, giving it a special texture when knit up.

We especially love that this cotton/wool blend is a perfect weight for summer knitting and making trans-seasonal basics. The wool is easy on your hands, and elastic enough to keep its shape, while the cotton provides breathability and lightness. 

Hand wash only.
