From L4E 0H9


This beautifully hand-painted lambgora is naturally ultra warm, fluffy and soft. It has an appearance and ' halo ' reminiscent of pure angora. It is suitable for both hand and machine knitting. Put-up: 25g. FYI: Orkney Islands is one of the best places in the UK to experience the Aurora Borealis during autumn months. Local residents are so lucky enjoying the auroras every fall by taking advantage of their ideal location - just get closer to the window and look outside.

Note: 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 Co.

* Similar yarn: Incredible 4 ply, Long Fluff DK, Angora

Care: Wash a garment with eucalyptus wash or any other woolwash "no rinse", and dry flat pulling the garment into the correct shape, away from direct heat and sunshine. Do not wring out the garment - roll it in a towel and gently press to remove excess water. The yarn dries quickly as all natural angora yarns. Do not iron, never hang on a hanger, it will stretch the shape. Note: There may be slight flaws in the colour at the first wash, this is natural for commercial dyes on natural fibers.
