Shearing and Wool Conditioning
Shearing follows strict animal welfare guidelines by renowned shearing companies and shearers. Wool undergoes a specific conditioning process to enhance its presentation and prevent contamination. The Green Label (Grifa Verde) certifies the wool harvesting process to increase the selling value of the final result.
