INCREDIBLE DK, 100% German Angora DK


Orkney Angora INCREDIBLE DK,
made in Scotland

The home of responsibly sourced angora in the UK.


Incredible DK is a hand-dyed, millspun, smooth and uniform, 1st grade pure German angora in double knit weight. It is manufactured in Scotland, Island of Orkney. This yarn is unbrushed, has a lower than French angora per cent of shedding, quot;blooms" exceptionally well, and is suitable for both hand and machine knitting of medicinal articles and thermal clothing including sportswear, different types of warmers and undergarments. Incredible DK is available in hand-dyed solid and hand-painted colours, and two yarn weights: 4 ply-fingering /light sport weight and double knit.

Facts about angora rabbit wool:
Angora knitwear was doctor-prescribed in Europe for the pain relief, without drugs. Many people use angora garments and medicinal articles to treat different kinds of pain: headache - angora hats, scarves, or headbands to sleep in, back pain - angora T-shirts or waist warmers, knee arthritis - angora knee pads. Some of the manufacturers of medicinal wear, like Sigvaris, commercially manufacture different types of angora warmers.
Instead of wearing layers of warm clothes of different styles and origins to survive the Canadian Cold, we put on just one thin, feather-weight angora garment under a coat or a jacket, and enjoy all the beauty and advantages of Winter Wonderland.

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.

This yarn is easy to care for: wash a garment with eucalyptus wash or any other woolwash "no rinse" in cold water. Use the same temperature of water for washing and rinsing to avoid "shoking" the fiber. Do not wring out the garment - roll it in a towel and gently press to remove excess water. Dry flat pulling the garment into correct shape, away from direct heat and sunlight. Do not iron, and do not hang angora knitwear on a hanger.
* If your angora garment lost its angora "halo" (usually, after incorrect washing), just gently brush it with your hair-brush on both right and reverse sides. The garment must be dry. - Irene & Mr.Sheep
