Composition: 100% fine Portuguese wool

Size: 50 g

Meterage: 143m

Weight: Sport

Needle Size: 3.5 - 4.5mm

Gauge: 20-23 sts, 28-32 rows = 4 inches /10cm square =10cm

Care: Hand Wash Only, do not tumble dry, reshape whilst damp.

Vovó (Portuguese for Grandma) is a versatile and hard wearing non-superwash 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.

Vovó is made from the wool of free range sheep. Mulesing is not practised in Portugal.

Grown, scoured, milled and dyed in Portugal. Like all of Rosa Pomar yarns, Vovó is non-superwash and not bleached.

Passionately promoting Portugal's wool traditions and heritage, they focus on the country's sixteen sheep breeds, some rare and endangered. They work closely with small local makers, breeders, and shepherds.

Their yarns are as natural as it gets: no fancy treatments or chemicals. They keep things real - no bleaching, no silicone softeners. Just good, honest wool. And they're big on treating sheep right. The wool comes from sheep that roam free, with no harsh practices like mulesing.

Retrosaria Rosa Pomar isn't your average yarn shop. It's a slice of Portuguese culture, championing traditional methods and sustainable living, one skein of yarn at a time.
