Please note that skein sizes change with every batch of handspun we receive. Photographs below are intended to show color and not necessarily skein or cake size.
Sandra, of Daylilly B True Angoras in Windsor, just loves her rabbits, and loves hand- spinning their fiber too! She has a variety of breeds and collects their fiber by either shearing or brushing.
When angora is knitted, crocheted, or woven, it creates and incredibly warm fabric as well as a beautiful halo. Because of the loft of this fiber, it can be worked at a range of needle or hook sizes, as well worked alternately with another yarn. In general, we would gauge this yarn as a dk/light worsted unless otherwise noted.
Angora yarn in cakes:
The black (light grey) is 100% German angora (sheared) is spun at a heavy worsted weight.
The chocolate is 100% Satin angora (plucked) is spun at a worsted weight.
The fawn is 100% Satin angora, (plucked) is spun at a worsted weight.
The white is either 100% French angora (plucked) spun at a dk weight or 100% German (plucked) and also spun at a dk weight.
Angora yarn in skeins:
Angora/Jacob Wool is a 4.4 oz. worsted weight yarn and has 162 yards.
Hot pink and teal highlights skeins come spun at a heavy worsted weight gauge. It is approximately 50% angora, plied with Jacob handspun/
Taupe is a blend of 40% angora and 60% alpaca. Each skein has approximately 220 yards (heavy worsted). It is so very squishy soft!
The yarn is absolutely a pleasure to work with. I have paired it with Berroco Vintage chunky and made two cowls for my granddaughters. I would highly recommend it.
This is my 3rd purchase of Daylilly handspun angora. This is a blend og angora and merino. Brilliant white and lapis blue. Love it!
Beautiful blend of natural colors in 100% Angora. Glorious.
