PONCHO MANTEIGAS

€359,00
Tax included.
Our poncho Manteigas is named after a small city in the middle of Serra da Estrela, the National park where our sheep graze. Our poncho Manteigas is made of 100% organic wool. In this region you find regional specific sheep breeds; The Bordeleira sheep are most common, and they have adapted perfectly to the local circumstances. It is 100% Bordeleira wool which is used for this poncho. Because of the different patterns used in the poncho it takes 5 hours to weave one. Once the poncho is taken from the machine the knotting of the fringes takes another 5 hours. This is done by families in the valley and provides an extra source of income for them. The factory is family-owned and employs local weave masters who have wool in their blood.
This poncho measures 160x 180cm 
The yarn is 100% organic and local wool
