A breed-specific wool, Rosy Green, source the fleeces from flocks in Southern France where Merino d'Arles sheep have been kept since 1806. Each summer, they are lead to pasture in lush meadows of the Alps, a long-kept tradition. Once shorn, the fleeces are spun and dyed in a small mill here in England according to strict GOTs regulations.
