Magdalena Diaz and Sebastian Ifran are the winners of the finest merino producers contest, the contest that Malabrigo sponsored in Uruguay last year.
The farm “Pablo Páez” is located in Cerro Largo, in the north east of Uruguay. They have worked with super fine merino wool since 1996, but have been raising wool sheep since 1980.
The prize of the contest is to go to Stitches East close to New York with us, and we are very excited to take them. Our idea is to connect the producer with the knitters or final consumers, instead of just being a middle man. We want to make sure you know who your wool is coming from!
