Collection: Gentile di Puglia

Gentile di Puglia is a woollen spun yarn, so it is spun from carded wool, rather than combed wool. This means that even the shorter fibres coming from the sheep are used to create the yarn, and those short fibres help retaining air in the yarn, which is thick, but very light and oh so warm, as the air trapped in the yarn insulates and don't let the cool air outside in. In return, the yarn is more fragile, easier to felt, and subject to wear and tear. But it also mean you don't need to weave in your ends, as they'll stick to each other anyway! ;-)
