A precious German angora yarn manufactured by Lada Kirisenko - a famous spinner and weaver. Rusangora® Art Farm is a member of International Association of German Angora Rabbit Breeders (IAGARB), and 110 rabbits of this farm are grown and groomed with the highest, humane standards. Each rabbit is a part of a big Family, and has a unique name based on her/his character: Twirl, Twist, Golden Baby, Bosya, Fearless, etc. Since rabbits live in love, eat well and receive professional care, sometimes 20 hours a day, they produce a very healthy fiber, we would say 'fiber with a soul'. Spun into hanks, it feels like real, fluffy and warm little rabbits!

This yarn is called 'Bulky' because the rabbits' fiber is spun into a thick thread - much thicker than commercial angoras, which are usually manufactured in up to Double Knit. But the actual weight of Angora Bulky is similar - it is Light Chunky! A small content of Merino wool is added for strength so that the finished garments could be durable enough to last long. With washing and wear, an angora 'halo' is developed.
Angora Bulky is manufactured in a few Natural colours, depending on the colour of the rabbits who agreed to have a haircut: Natural White, Natural Blue Grey, Natural Grey, Natural Beige, Natural Charcoal. Natural Light Grey is currently in our inventory. *Recommendation: Since this angora is spun from short-staple fluff and it is in a heavy weight, its knitted fabric has a slightly slubbed texture. To obtain a perfect stitch definition, we would recommend to combine this yarn with a fingering/lace-weight brushed alpaca or mohair and knit on 5.5 mm (US 9) needles.

For more information about Lada Kirisenko and her farm, please refer to Linda Kortright's Wild Fibers Magazine Vol 12 Issue 3 »

Garment Care: *Hand wash if soiled only.* Hand wash in lukewarm water with woolwash No Rinse. Do not wring out the garment - roll it in a towel and gently press to remove excess water. Dry flat on the towel, pulling the garment into correct shape, away from direct heat and sunlight. Change a towel as soon as it is wet. To turn sides of the garment, use another towel - put it on the top of the garment, turn sides and remove the towel, which is on top. When your garment is just slightly wet, put it on the rack until dry - do not stretch it. Finally, when completely dried, slightly spay with anti-static to remove natural static electricity of the wool.
‹ Never use any laundry conditioner - it will remove natural static electricity of the wool and your garment will loose its fluffiness.
‹ Do not store on hangers. ‹ Do not iron.
‹ To refresh your garment: Put into a steam bath for 5-7 min (the same way like you steam veggies) constantly turning sides and making sure your garment is not too wet. Dry flat. - Irene & Sheep.
