Katia Angora 100 is a very fluffy and superb quality, natural and pure French angora yarn in double knit weight and solid colours. Put-up: 50 m / 10 g. Expensive: in North America, French Angora is priced between 9 to 16 US$ per 10g.
FYI French Angora is supposed to consist of 30% guard hair. There is not much difference in the spinning of English and French angora fibers. However, French Angora 'blooms' more due to the guard hairs. English Angora needs to be "abused" a little to achieve this bloom. German (Giant) Angora was developed through selective breeding, resulting in a rabbit with very high fur yields. Its fur is strong enough for commercial processing.
