Brusca is a Portuguese breed and flock specific yarn, made of 50% Saloia and 50% Merino Branco and Merino Preto wool. Saloia is the native sheep breed to the region of Lisbon and Setúbal. It is well documented since the 19th century as its wool was one of the finest available in the country. Saloia sheep have also become famous for their milk, from which the famous Azeitão cheese was traditionally made. Brusca is made from the wool of free range sheep. Mulesing is not practised in Portugal.Grown, scoured, milled and dyed in Portugal.

Shades A, B, C and BC are natural (not dyed). Dyed colors also indicate what natural base was used, achieving a subtle heathered look. Brusca is non-superwash and not bleached.
