Royal Petites Animals

Sweet, soft and fond of shoots, leaves, and mud wallows, RenÈ hails from the southern regions of Africa (Cote d’Ivoire to be exact) where his family rules with wisdom, kind acts, and fairness for all. Like most rhinos he doesnt see so well, but he’s an excellent listener, content to offer quiet companionship by the bedside or on the bookshelf.

Woolstok: Get to Know the Wool You Love

In the Highlands of Peru, our premium pure wool yarn is created from the fleece of a crossbreed of Corriedale sheep and local Peruvian Highland sheep and is processed in a state-of-the-art mill. Due to this crossbreed, weather conditions, living at high altitudes and diet, the sheep develop a crimpy and durable wool, which we all love and know as our wonder yarn, Woolstok.
