This is an exceptional yarn produced by Ilídia Oliveira, one of the Mulheres de Bucos. The wool comes from a local flock of Bordaleira sheep from Entre-Douro-e-Minho, one of our native breeds. From shearing, the wool is entirely processed by Ilídia, from washing to spinning, through carding. This is a single ply yarn, mixed and irregular, created from the mixture of white and black wool in the carding phase. Spinning is completely manual, in a spindle identical to those that inspired our Portuguese spindles.

This mixed yarn was originally designed by Helena Cardoso, to be used in the scarves she produces with Mulheres de Bucos, with whom she collaborates continuously for years.
