Yarns of animal origin
It is worth making separate mention of Metsovo, one of the most significant weaving centers, if not the most significant, where the sheep wool is called lana di sti oaie and goat wool is called caprina, the white wool is called alba, the black is called laie, lambs wool is called gnitsa, white wool with black hair is called saina, the first wool after birth is called saitallia.
A basic separation is also done based on texture and size of the wool. It is separated into soft (rouda), rough (ayra), long (lounga) and short (skourta).
The black wool is collected separately and destined for the weaving of specific cloth for everyday male clothing and material for horses.
