The wool we use comes from the guatemalan highlands of Momostenango, Totónicapan.
Momostenango’s cold weather and altitude favors the quality and resistance of the wool.
Artisans shear the sheep hair and then is washed to take out all the grease and dirt of the material. The wool is picked which is the beginning of the process of opening up the locks of wool and turning them into yarn.
The wool then is combed several times, this process is called carding. Plush is obtained from this carding process.
The wool is roved to obtain yarn and a thread cone is made. The natural colors you obtain from sheep are beige, light brown, dark brown and black. Dyed colors are possible. These dyes are obtained from bark trees and owners of the region.
