Zagal is a bulky knitting and crochet yarn produced exclusively from the wool of Portuguese Merino sheep, an indigenous breed found in the south of Portugal, especially in the Alentejo. The Merino breed originated in the Iberian Peninsula, possibly before Roman times, and has always been highly prized by its finesse and softness.

For centuries this Iberian wool was traded all over Europe while Merino sheep were subject to strict laws that kept the breed exclusive to the peninsula. The Portuguese Merino Breeders Association verifies the origin and quality of the fleece used to produce this yarn.

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.
