The finest batch of lanaitaliana

Since 2006 Lanificio Bottoli has promoted a national competition to award a prize to "the finest batch of Italian wool".

The competition is open to the best sheep breeders and reserved for grease wool from the shearing of sheep bred exclusively in Italy, comprising Italian animals developed from Merino breeds registered in the Italian genealogical records: Gentile di Puglia, Sopravissana and Merinized Italia.

The aim of this initiative is to increase sensitivity towards our country’s sheep patrimony and encourage the recovery and selection of animals whose wool was practically ignored for many years.

The best batches are used for the Lanaitaliana Lifestyle® line of fabrics.
