With the slightly slubbed, handspun texture, this German angora rabbit yarn still keeps the warmth of the spinner's soul. This yarn is grown and spun by Lada Kirisenko - a famous spinner and weaver, on her angora rabbit farm - a member of International Association of German Angora Rabbit Breeders (IAGARB). The 'fluffy balls' are fed and groomed with lots of love resulting in a superb quality, healthy fiber. Since Long Fluff DK is spun from the long-staple fiber (long fluff), it develops a thick and fuzzy 'halo' similar to French varieties. A small content of Merino extrafine is added for strength of the yarn and long live of the finished garments. Long Fluff DK is suitable for hand knitting, crochet, and felt. For more information about Lada Kirisenko and her farm, please refer to Linda Kortright's Wild Fibers Magazine Vol 12 Issue 3 »
