Retrosaria Rosa Pomar produces and sells yarn made exclusively from Portuguese wool. They create manufactured yarn in collaboration with small manufacturers, breeders associations and shepherds, and also commission small batches of artisan yarns like Bucos, Alfeire, Nordeste and Mirandesa, which are scoured, teased, carded and spun by hand in small villages around the country.

Minimally processed yarns: all Rosa Pomar yarns are non superwash, not bleached and have no silicone based softeners. Their woollen yarns may contain traces of vegetable matter.

Animal friendly: their wool comes from free range sheep. Mulesing is not practiced in Portugal.
