    Opal's Schafpate yarn line is made from the wool of sponosored sheep in their sustainable, eco-friendly program. The sheep in this program enjoy a free-range lifestyle and a humane harvesting of their wool each year.

    Through the purchase of suitable breeding bucks, the quality of the wool has improved significantly over the last 14 years. With the sheep sponsorships, the shepherds are supported directly via subsidies for feed, pasture lease, and wool subsidies. The participating shepherds have received over 181,000 Euros in support so far! 

    So feel good knowing that you're supporting a humane and sustainable practice while knitting up socks, hats, mittens, and scarves for all your loved ones.
