A Very Luxurious Yarn
This pure angora yarn is lovingly handspun in my home studio on my Louet S45.
The fiber is a fine combed Angora top with a staple (fiber) length of 3.5″. I have developed a technique for hand spinning this top that will incorporate more air and bounce giving a loftier and more fluffy (semi woolen) yarn than a simple worsted preparation. At the same time this method will help to retain some of the best qualities of a worsted yarn such as strength and longevity and resistance to shedding.
Suitable for wearing next to the skin and perfect for knitting for baby. It would be lovely spun in a lace weight for a scarf or a lightweight shawl, in Sport, DK or Worsted weight for sweaters, hats and mitts, gloves, scarves, neck warmers, blankets or shawls.
