Named after one of the most beautiful villages in national park Serra da Estrela this Poncho is made of 100% organic wool. In the National Park where the sheep graze you find region-specific sheep breeds; The Bordeleira sheep are the most common ones. They are adapted to the region and its weather conditions. In May the sheep are sheared by hand, with animal welfare as the most important focus. Maltreated animals don't deliver great wool. The poncho is 2-coloured and has 2 different patterns in one design; it takes 5 hours to weave this poncho on the 150 year old machines. The poncho is finished with a red colored selvedge listing and has hand knotted fringes. The factory is family owned, and supports the local community.
