Pattern Description from Faith, Hope, Love, Knitting: “These patterns were among Ida’s favorites to knit from her handspun angora. Angora is eight times warmer than sheep’s wool, and like wool, stays warm even when it gets wet. Ida made dozens of pairs of gloves as gifts. They’re ‘fuzz-less’ as they’re knitted, but after a few wearings the angora blossoms, creating warm, fuzzy halos for the hands. The bunny also shows more fuzz after being given some love.”
