INCREDIBLE 4 PLY, 100% German Angora 4 ply


Orkney Angora INCREDIBLE 4 PLY,
made in Scotland

The home of responsibly sourced angora in the UK.


Incredible 4 ply is a hand-dyed, pure millspun German angora yarn in 4 ply fingering /light sport weigh. It has the same characteristics as Incredible DK: It is unbrushed, silky and velvety to the touch, has a low per cent of shedding, and develops an amazing "halo". This angora yarn is suitable for hand- and machine knitting. It is suitable for sweaters, accessories and warmers (hats, scarves, socks, muffs, leggings), as well as for medicinal, next-to-the-skin thermal clothing and underwear. * German Angora rabbits do not molt, angora fur is collected by shearing.

The Island of Orkney is located in the North Sea (it is a neighbor archipelago to Fair Isle, Shetland and Faroe), where winters are severe and living without angora knitwear is impossible (it is 7 times warmer than sheep wool). The local people use angora not only for knitting sweaters and accessories, but also for making very thin angora underwear and medicinal articles (different types of warmers), and wear them next to the skin to protect themselves from the local cold. Some of the manufacturers of medicinal wear, e.g. Sigvaris, commercially manufacture angora warmers.
We use this yarn for athletic vests. Made of this yarn, they are great for snowboarding and skiing: You won't be cold at -15ºC and won't be hot at +10ºC. More information »

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.

Notes: 1) Though the yarn is dyed exceptionally well, a slight tone-on-tone colour variation may occur due to hand dying in small batches; 2) There may be slight flaws in the colour at the first wash, this is natural for commercial dyes on natural fibers.
