Fingering-weight pure dehaired German angora. This is an incredibly soft, worsted-spun yarn suitable for crochet, lace hand and machine knitting of feather-weight projects such as gossamer scarves, shawls, and layered knits: pullovers, light coats, ect. FYI: 'Skara Brae' is Stone Age UNESCO World Heritage Site. The village is dating from 3200BC, when the building of the pyramids began.

* Please be advised: The manufacturer does not supply labels for this yarn. 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. - Irene & Mr.Sheep
