Wool Sourcing

At jYANN, our creative process is a journey. We begin high in the Atlas Mountains, where the wool from local sheep forms the foundation of our products. This unique wool is renowned for its quality, warmth, and natural beauty. It is the core of our craft, where we employ an age-old technique called felting. This ancient craft, celebrated for its warmth and durability, forms a vital part of our heritage.

The journey continues with our craftswomen taking delicate care in the manual carding process. In a world moving towards automation, we cherish the human touch, as they manually comb the wool fibers into a smooth, soft texture. This traditional method not only sustains a rich heritage but ensures the wool retains its natural character. Each step of our process underscores our commitment to both craftsmanship and environmental sustainability.
