Retrosaria – Mondim


Mondim is a very unique sock yarn as it does not contain any nylon nor it’s been superwash treated. Made of sturdy Portuguese fine wool Mondim is hardwearing and has a beautifully round and rustic handle. The rich palette include speckled, self striping and plain colourways that are easy to mix and match to create striking stranded pieces. It was named after a Portuguese village once famous for its thriving sock knitting industry.
