Mungo is a worsted weight recycled wool and cotton yarn. Wool/cotton blends are fantastic for knitters, combining the best of both worlds - wool’s resilience and warmth with cotton’s softness and washability. Mungo comes in a wonderful palette and is ideal for a wide range of projects like sweaters, blankets, and accessories.
Rosa Pomar’s yarns are all made exclusively from heritage Portuguese wool, which actively supports farmers and other small-scale producers. Mungo’s blend is created by blending pre-consumer cotton textile waste generated by Portuguese spinning mills with Portuguese and/or Spanish wool, making it a sustainable and ethical product.
