Lanas Stop French Angora (a.k.a. Nature) is one of the best quality angora yarn in the world. It 'blooms' similar to Anne Blatt Angora Prestige. It is in light 2-ply double knit weight and is manufactured in solid colours. Even though its put-up is 10g per ball, there are 50m in the ball. 20g are enough to knit a hat in a simple K-and-P stitch pattern. Expensive. * Note: Lanas Stop 'Nature', an equivalent yarn, was re-branded and is now manufactured under the name of 'Angora'.
