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.
