A few years ago, I heard rumors that Patagonia (the company) was working with ranchers in Patagonia (the region) to improve the quality of wool being grown.
Apparently it was part of a bigger biodiversity and grasslands regeneration project called Ovis 21. Years later, the sheep are now producing wool as fine as cashmere.
While most of those precious fibers go directly to the fashion industry, Kristin Ford managed to nab an exclusive deal for her new handknitting yarn company, Woolfolk. Join me for a very satisfying swatch.
