When you talk of textiles, one of the most important topics is traceability. Excellence most of all means understanding where the raw materials to be used come from. The wool mill collaborates with breeders of the historical Umbrian Pettino sheep with the idea of recuperating traditional wools from that area. At the same time, completely no-mulesing and traceable wools are also used. And alongside natural fibres, there is the exploration of the use of recycled km 0 yarns.
