100% wool bestowed from the Alentejo sheep in Portugal, traditionally produced and spun manually, has been used since the 16th century in the Portuguese tapestry of the Arraiolos. The Alentejo is characterized by its vast lowlands sometimes cut off by modest mountains where you can admire herds of sheep who peacefuuly roam this region that lies beyond the Tejo River. And in the wool they produce, there are many stories that can be told.
