The main objective of the LANALAND project is to increase the added value of sheep wool from indigenous dairy breeds, as it is currently residual and has become a problematic management for local farmers.
The project aims to develop innovative solutions for the valorisation of this product and to offer new growth opportunities to local companies from a circular economy perspective.
