Fun self-striping yarn with the added advantage of helping the Save the Rainforest organization when 1 euro is donated for each skein sold!
Opal begins from a purely German Merino wool raised in the nature reservation BiosphäreAlb in South Germany, and processed at Bremer Woll-Kämmerei AG in Bremen and the Zwickauer Kammgarn GmbH and finally to manufacture the famous OPAL sweater and sock-knitting wool in the town of knitting, Hechingen. "Like this the journey from textile raw material to the distribution of ready-made wool ready for the final consumers is consistently comprehensible," is the comment of Wolfgang Zwerger, CEO of TUTTO GmbH …"The guaranty of origin gives the consumer more security and confidence."
