Belangor is the most elegant angora ever. It is french born and made, and for commercial angora, comes from from the only breeder left in France who humanely grooms his rabbits.
Don’t be fooled by other lesser quality Angora blends, this is THE authentic Belangor™ French Angora. This decadent luxury fiber comes in a variety of gorgeous, luminous shades.
Extremely warm, this lighter than air yarn feels sumptuous against the skin, and is a favorite for cowls, hats, mittens and scarves. Galler Yarns has imported this yarn continuously since 1951. In 2013 this pure natural yarn, made from fibre hand-combed from carefully tended Angora rabbits, was officially designated as an Artisan Product in France.
Gauge depends on needle size - this can be knit as a DK or worsted, in a dense fabric or an open almost lacey one. Swatching can help determine correct gauge for your project; the swatch yarn can be re-used if undone gently. Every beautiful, adorable ball is it's own little ball of delight!
