Corniglio Beanies

This is the begininning of our new mission: preserving the variation of Life. It was 1700 when, in our hometown in Italy (Parma), a special breed of sheep, so called "Cornigliese", was obtained by the Borbone's Family from local sheeps and the precious Spanish Merinos sheep, in order to get a better wool. In 1800 the Cornigliese Sheep slowly started to disappear, and in 1994 the FAO counted about 50 Cornigliese Sheep, but thanks to the efforts of the government and local entrepreneurs, the sheep started to reappear and today we count about 800 Cornigliese Sheeps. So we bought all the wool of these sheeps, we spinned it, and we started making products with it.
