Precious. With the slightly slubbed, handspun texture, this refined German angora rabbit yarn still keeps the warmth of the spinner's soul. This angora yarn, same as Angora Bulky, is grown and spun by Lada Kirisenko - a famous spinner and weaver, on her angora rabbit farm - a member of International Association of German Angora Rabbit Breeders (IAGARB). There are 110 angora rabbits on the farm and 2 caretakers. The 'fluffy balls' are fed and groomed with lots of love resulting in a superb quality, healthy fiber. Since Long Fluff DK is spun from the long-staple fiber (long fluff), it develops a thick and fuzzy 'halo' similar to French varieties.

Long Fluff DK is manufactured in undyed and unbleached, slightly creamy Natural Pearl White colour, and Natural hues of Grey. A small content of Merino extrafine is added for strength of the yarn and long live of the finished garments. Long Fluff DK is suitable for handknitting, crochet, and felt. 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.* 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 dry, 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.
