Rambouillet/Angora Yarn

What’s special about this yarn?

It’s the perfect combination of the bounce and spring of Rambouillet with the silky softness of Angora. The angora is the perfect example of our quality and ethical standards. Like all animal fibers, angora has both straight primary fibers and softer secondary fibers. Most angora has prominent primary fibers that produce an obvious halo, and they don’t feel very soft because they’re straight. The solution? The same as with other fiber animals…careful breeding to improve the quality of the fiber and careful processing to ensure that only the best fiber makes it into the finished fiber. The result? An extremely soft yarn that gets even softer, since the extremely soft secondary fibers will make the halo.

On its own, angora lacks crimp and has no elasticity which is where rambouillet comes in. Together they produce a yarn that behaves like rambouillet, with elasticity and memory, but feels incredibly soft thanks to the angora.
