This YogurtNest is part of our Portuguese Mountain Villages collection.

And what a special YogurtNest it is! It was named by the YogurtNest Tribe, after the Portuguese mountain village of Benfeita.

Benfeita is one of Central Portugal’s Aldeias de Xisto, or slate villages. It’s located in the Serra do Açor region, a protected area which encompasses Mata da Margaça, one of the last deciduous woodlands in the country.

The Portuguese Mountain Villages collection was made possible by a chance discovery, when we found a stash of woolen fabrics, forgotten for over two decades in a warehouse, perfectly preserved in the original wrapping. It was a real barn find and love at first sight!
We have no record of its origin – although we suspect it originates from a long gone wool weaving factory- the quality, though, is absolutely stunning!

Due to the limited amount of fabric available, this is one of the rarest models of the YogurtNest.
