The Nordic sheep industry throws away thousands of tons of wool each year due to the fact that no one makes use of the fiber. At RESIDUS they are always on the hunt for high quality leftover! Their Gotland Wool project is created to make use of some of the beautiful Nordic Sheep wool that would otherwise go to waste. Their crossbreed is cut and spun in Denmark and knitted in Latvia.
