Product Details

The Schafpate project provides high wool quality through sheep sponsorships. These sponsorships provide many positive side effects for humans and nature.

Zwerger Garn has been supporting migratory sheep farming in Germany with the Schafpate series for 15 years, and direct help can be provided to selected sheep farms through sheep sponsorships. (Schafpate translates literally as "Sheep Godfather")

The flocks of sponsored sheep are having a good time under the trees of the Swabian Alps. Some love to nibble on the branches, standing on their hind legs or stretching their necks. They look for a place to sleep under the rustling leaves, and use the trees for shade. They nap comfortably between wild berries and tree roots, so it's easy to stay until the morning dew.

The grazed areas have a unique biodiversity of plants and insects. This collection Opal Schafpate 15 - Under Trees contributes to the preservation of this special cultural landscape.

With the purchase of the Opal Schafpate (Sponsored Sheep) series, you support the German migratory sheep farming and promote the landscape care of the unique Swabain Alps.
