Don’t be fooled by other lesser quality Angora blends, this is THE authentic Belangor™ French Angora. This decadent luxury fiber comes in a variety of gorgeous, luminous shades.
Extremely warm, this lighter than air yarn feels sumptuous against the skin, and is a favorite for cowls, hats, mittens and scarves. Galler Yarns has imported this yarn continuously since 1951. In 2013 this pure natural yarn, made from fibre hand-combed from carefully tended Angora rabbits, was officially designated as an Artisan Product in France.

Handwash with care, dry flat; or have dry-cleaned at a facility with experience in this kind of fiber - the fiber felts easily.
Gauge depends on needle size - this can be knit as a DK or worsted, in a dense fabric or an open almost lacey one. Swatching can help determine correct gauge for your project; the swatch yarn can be re-used if undone gently.
