This year our bare but as much precious 34kg of wool yielded by our Campaniças, some white, some black, were carefully and attentively washed by Isilda and Carlos, near Covilhã, and then carded in Manteigas, in the Burel Factory. Being there was a discovery as it was true travelling in time, and a huge pleasure and much happiness as it all happens genuinely by its Portuguese roots. We warmly recommend a visit to their premises. The space, the workers, the equipment, the production, the atelier, the shop, their cleanliness, everything won our hearts.

It was a rewarding experience as much as a pleasure for the senses, to watch “our” wool being transformed into bats, ready for spinning. We’ll surely come again next year!
