Lanas Stop French Angora (a.k.a. Nature) is one of the best quality angora yarn in the world. It is in light 2-ply double knit weight and is manufactured in solid colours. Even though its put-up is 10g per ball, there are 50m in the ball. 20g are enough to knit a hat in a simple K-and-P stitch pattern. Expensive.

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.
