REVALUATION OF TRANSHUMANT GRAZING AND THE NATIVE BREEDS
OF THE NATURE
Charlotte Houman, who lives at the foot of the Sierra de Gredos, presents us with her exclusive collection of sustainable fashion that emerged from the project to value Spanish merino wool, together with the Transhumance and Nature Association and the Cabello Bravo (Siruela) cattle farm.
In the Extremadura meadow, the flocks of Merino sheep are raised in their natural environment, the pasture, grazing freely, in ideal welfare conditions _cc781905-5cde-3994 -bb3b-136bad5cf58d_animal and providing a series of benefits that affect the health of its population and its ecosystems.
Merino wool is thermoregulating, insulating, water repellent, soft, durable, natural, weightless, breathable and is very suitable for babies and allergy sufferers. The manufacture of the fabrics, from washing the wool to finishing, is done by combining artisan techniques (laundry and fulling) with modern techniques (digital Jaquard loom).
