Opal Schafpate 14 - Winterweide is a wear-resistant yarn made from 75% virgin wool (superwash) and 25% polyamide in 8 natural colourways. Ideally suited for knitting cosy warm socks with unique colour patterns, but of course also for sweaters, cardigans, hats, gloves, scarves or cuddly toys. Opal is back for the fourteenth year with their beloved Schafpate collection. The yarn from this collection is made from a rare breed of German sheep wool. A share of the profit from the Schafpate 14 Winterweide collection will be invested towards the protection of German migratory sheep farming and Opal is proud to share with their customers that over 165.000 euros have been collected for this cause throughout the years!
As for wool obtained from this unique breed of sheep, it is very soft on the skin, non-shrinking and hard-wearing.
