Opal Schafpate promotes a “buy local” concept. The yarn is made through an all-German supply chain beginning with merino sheep at the Nature Preserve BiosphäreAlb in South Germany. The wool is processed in the Bremer Woll-Kämmerei AG in Bremen and spun in the Zwickauer Kammgarn GmbH. Finally, it is printed into sock yarn by TUTTO Wolfgang Zwerger GmbH in Hechingen. Opal Schafpate is a great blend of superwash merino and nylon that you'll love working with. Made in Germany.
