About the Fiber

Gentile di Luciana is a 2-ply carded sport weight yarn that is gently twisted. Knitting with this extraordinarily soft, voluminous, and light yarn is a true pleasure. 

Efforts have been dedicated to recovering the last flocks of the pure breed and initiating a biodiversity preservation program. Choosing Gentile di Lucania yarn means more than acquiring wool; you're wrapping yourself in history, tradition, and a commitment to a brighter, sustainable future.


These sheep live the good life in the Basilicata region, roaming free among the ancient forests. Based in the Italian Biella textile district our supply chain is a well-guarded secret, ensuring quality and embracing social and environmental sustainability at every step.


All processing takes place in Biella's luxury textile district, home to ancient and invaluable craftsmanship where the human touch still makes a significant difference.
