Like all of our yarns, Angelic uses only fibers that are humanely farmed and harvested, sustainably processed, and spun and dyed by highly skilled craftspeople in Italy, then fulled, skeined, twisted & labelled at our studio in northern Illinois.

Part of the Sunday Knits colorwork palette along with Eden, Nirvana and Brigadoon.

Light, lofty and silky soft - full enough to fill out a sport-weight gauge but fine enough for a fingering project.

Yarns that are composed of fine fibers which are softly spun have a tendency to form pills. My 3 ply and 5 ply blends, whose fibers are super fine (their micron width approaches that of cashmere) and whose spin is especially light and lofty fall into this category. The first times that a garment is worn, when the fabric is rubbed, the finest fibers tend to worm their way to the surface, creating little fibery pills.

Happily, this early phase of pilling is just that - only a phase. The pills can be removed easily (I recommend the Gleener), and the fabric will “harden off” (that’s a wool industry term, even though the fabric is never at all hard), and my most frequently-worn personal garments have no pills whatsoever.
