Brusca is a breed and flock specific yarn. It is 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. Shades A, B, C and BC are natural (not dyed).  

This is a rustic yarn, not suitable for people who are sensitive to sheepy wools.
