Shearing time at the malabrigo Sheepfold

We have been working on this for a while and wanted to share it with you today, a video of our sheep flock! We hope this will be the first of others, but all in good time! 🙂

Malabrigo flock, La Serena, Uruguay.

Malabrigo flock, La Serena, Uruguay.

As some of you know, we have our beloved sheep flock, who live on a ranch called La Serena, near our headquarters in Montevideo. In this video we show you around beautiful Piedras de Afilar and demonstrate the process by which we shear our sheep and harvest the beautiful fleece that becomes Malabrigo yarn. We strive to use sustainable and humane farming practices with our ranch and flock – a happy sheep makes the best wool!

We hope you enjoy it, as we enjoy and value sharing what is important to us with you!
