BELANGOR ANGORA COLORS
Galler Handcombed French Angora
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!
Above right, an amazing "halo effect" defines this beautifully soft angora!
