Milk River is a handspun lace-weight German Angora yarn suitable for gossamer knits: shawls and and accessories, refined pullovers, featherweight light coats, layered knitwear. Using two stands, Milk River can be hand knitted on 3.5 mm needles to make a cute fluffy pullover or wrap. The yarn is ultra warm, develops beautiful and fluffy angora 'halo', and manufactured in Natural Warm Pearl White. This lace-weight yarn is sold in nicely arranged balls, not loosely tied hanks, that makes the knitter's life much easier. The fiber for 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 .For more information about Lada Kirisenko and her farm, please refer to Linda Kortright's Wild Fibers Magazine Vol 12 Issue 3 »
