WHAT TO EXPECT/ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION

Soft wool transformed into warm and comfortable tailor-made clothes, ready to wear! Come and meet Susy and Viola, and observe their hands transforming the wool of the sheeps raised in Val di Peio into knitwear, later dyed using natural methods. Afterwards, you can touch the soft wool and make a cute sheep-shaped pin to take home.

INTERESTING FACTS/INFO

The wool used in the La Lana Lunatica knitwear comes from sheep raised in Val di Pejo. Thanks to the dyes made with onion peels, lichens, and other natural elements, the pieces are truly unique.

WHO ARE WE

Susy and Viola are mother and daughter who have taken up an old family business, becoming true skilled knitters. Every day, their hands work with the precious wool from Val di Pejo, creating customized items.
