Beiroa is a lovely single-ply wool yarn. Like many of the Retrosaria Rosa Pomar yarns, Beiroa comes from a heritage sheep breed, the Bordaleira Serra da Estrela sheep. Beiroa blooms beautifully after washing, and is sticky and easy to knit. Each skein contains some natural brown fleece, resulting in a slightly variegated skein with a lot of character.
