This premium quality lambgora is manufactured in Scotland, and combines the finest qualities of two woollens blended together: the super warmth and exceptional softness of angora and the strength of the finest Scottish lambswool (fiber count - approx. 18.5 micron). This yarn is millspun, ultra soft, and is suitable for machine knitting as well.

Labels: The manufacturer does not supply labels for this yarn. We apologise for the inconvenience. Due to the lack of labels, each batch/dyelot is stored separately in our shop, and all balls per colour are shipped only in the same dyelot. Should you have any concerns or more detailed information be required, please contact the manufacturer - Orkney Angora. Thank you for your interest in our products. - Irene & Mr.Sheep Co.
Lambswool is a very soft wool from a sheep up to seven months old. Technically, it is the first shearing of a sheep, and is used blended with other woolens.
* Similar yarn: Langamay, Aurora Handpaints, Angora
Wash a garment with eucalyptus wash or any other woolwash "no rinse", and dry flat pulling the garment into the correct shape, away from direct heat and sunshine. Do not wring out the garment - roll it in a towel and gently press to remove excess water. The yarn dries quickly as all natural angora yarns. Do not iron, never hang on a hanger, it will stretch the shape.
Please be advised: As this yarn is dyed by hand in small batches, a tone-on-tone colour variation on the thread may occur. There may be slight flaws in the colour at the first wash, this is natural for commercial dyes on natural fibers.
