Fiber from the Angora Rabbit is finer than wool and cashmere. This hollow fiber has amazing insulating properties that make it seven times warmer than wool. It blends well with other fibers such as wool, silk, or cotton and provides a lovely halo effect. A long time favorite for knitting the fluffy santa beard on Christmas stockings, angora wool may be used in many other knitting projects as well.
NobleKnits has angora for sale from Plymouth Yarns. Angora may be used to knit sweaters, scarves, hats, shawls, and even mittens.
