Vovó (Portuguese for Grandma) is a versatile and hard wearing non-superwash yarn made entirely from fine Portuguese wool, mainly from Campaniça sheep. It is a great choice for sweaters and cardigans intended for daily wear. The Woolly Thistle is proud to stock Retrosaria Yarns by Rosa Pomar, which are minimally processed and animal friendly. 

Vovó is made from the wool of free range sheep. Mulesing is not practiced in Portugal.

Shades 01, 20, and 40 are not dyed. Like all Retrosaria yarns, Vovó is non-superwash and not bleached. 

Some of our favorite patterns that call for Retrosaria Vovó are the Fern Forest Cowl by Jennifer Steingass, Cinnamomum Pullover by Teti Lutsak, The whimsical Sock Collective// Socks n. 2 by Melody Hoffmann & Xenakis by Anna Johanna

We recommend purchasing 2 skeins of this sock yarn (totaling 100g) for an average-sized pair of socks.

I am loving this new-to-me yarn. Kelsey helped me with suggestions for the Meiju In Between Dreams cardigan, and Vovo is perfect. The swatch blocked beautifully with a soft hand and wonderful stitch definition. I may be in over my head with the initial short rows, but a few bouts of unknitting were easy with Vovo. Highly recommend!

Really enjoy working with this yarn. It is smooth with nice twist and hand. Yarn feels substantial but yet light and soft. Thickness is consistent. Making Cinnamonum Pullover which has simple lace, cables and twisted stitches in yoke and a stockinette body. Like yarn so much I purchased another sweaters worth. Visited Retrosaria Rosa Pomar shop in 2023 and was impressed with quality of yarns.
