Malabrigo is a family owned yarn company located in Uruguay.  Their wool is 100% produced by Uruguayan farms that allow their free-range sheep to wander through the hills and are herded by old-style shepherds.  They do not participate in the controversial practice of mulesing and sheep are sheared pre-lambing.  They are committed to achieving the highest standards of ethical sheep husbandry.  They also own and operate a second mill based in Peru.
