This is a project due to the necessity to save a rare sheep breed native to the Appenini mountains, which was crossed in 1750 with the Merino breed. Therefore it produces wool with great quality.
The organisers of this project sent wool free of charge all over the world.
Everyone of the receivers will produce an object using any kind of technique, the wool can be dyed and mixed with different materials.
In March 2012 there will be a big show of all the works in Italy.
