mYak Knitting Retreat in Italy | Langhe Region | September 29 – October 3, 2024

For our fall retreat we have chosen the queen of cables Thea Colman.

We want to make our retreats as wonderful as possible for both your souls and your tummy so this year we will welcome you to a true paradise for gourmands: the Langhe Region.

We’ll see sheep cheese production done in the old-fashioned way, do the tasting of Barolo – one of the best wines in the world and you will have the opportunity to enjoy some truffles. It will be a gastronomic experience discovering the flavors of raw milk cheese and in Borgomale we will meet Silvio Pistone and his sheeps.

Thea will teach two amazing workshops that we can’t wait to reveal.
