Vovó (Portuguese for Grandma) is a versatile and hard wearing non-superwash, non-bleached yarn made entirely from fine Portuguese wool, mainly from Serra da Estrela sheep. It is a great choice for sweaters and cardigans intended for daily wear.

Shades 20 to 25 were entirely made from the wool of the small flock of Campaniça sheep that lives (and can be visited) at Quinta do Pisão, Cascais. Shades 01 and 20 are not dyed. 

Vovó is made from the wool of free range sheep. The yarn for Vovó grown, scoured, milled and dyed in Portugal.

At Verb, we love knitting with yarns that are working to preserve rare breeds of sheep, and a transparent supply chain, so we love Retrosaria yarns. We love the durability and color range of this yarn - perfect for your next colorwork knitting, weaving, or punch-needle project.
