Burel is a traditional Portuguese fabric made from 100% pure sheep wool, always connected to Region of Serra da Estrela (highest mountain in Portugal), mountains and shepherds with their handmade covers.
The authenticity of the Burel is a result of a specific sequence of operations in the manufacturing process. The wool after being sheared, washed, spun, worped and woven in a loom of shuttle, will be pounded and scalded on a machine called “Pisão”. This operation – “pisoar” – will transform the tissue in Burel, make him more tight, resistant and waterproof.
