ANCESTRAL FABRIC - PURE VIRGIN WOOL
Burel is an ancient woven fabric made of 100% Sheep Wool, probably brought to Portugal by monks in the 11th century, and used by the Mountain shepherds since then. Burel is made from a unique process of washing the wool, spinning the wool and weaving it into fabric. It then gets pounded and scalded with very hot water. The result is an easy-care fabric, wear-resistant, natural, and that is also water-repellent and fire retardant, without losing its flexibility.
