And right from the beginning I was very enthusiastic about her and her work. She has so much passion for her work, I could feel it directly. Rosi shows us in the “Back to the wool” retreat the manufacturing process of some natural cosmetics and shares her rich knowledge with us.

In June this year, at the retreat of the Laine magazine, I had the honor to meet Valentina Consalvi. She has grown very dear to me directly and since then I do not want to miss her anymore. She runs her company “Snailyarn” in Ariccia near Rome and has made a name for herself as a hand dyer in the knitting scene in recent years.
