Spun by hand, this precious yarn still keeps the warmth of spinner's sole. With almost perfectly smooth and uniform texture (just slightly slubbed), Long Fluff also attracts by the slightly creamy and warm natural Pearl White colour. This angora yarn, same as Angora Bulky, is grown and spun by Lada Kirisenko on her angora rabbit farm - a member of International Association of German Angora Rabbit Breeders (IAGARB). The 'fluffy balls' are fed and groomed with care and receive lots of love resulting in a superb quality healthy fiber. Since Long Fluff DK is spun from the long-staple (long fluff) fiber, this angora develops a thick and fuzzy 'halo' similar to French varieties. It is manufactured in undyed and unbleached natural white. A small content of Merino extrafine is added for strength of the yarn and long live of the finished garments. Long Fluff DK is suitable for handknitting, crochet, and felt.

* For more information about Lada Kirisenko and her farm, please refer to Linda Kortright's Wild Fibers Magazine Vol 12 Issue 3.

Garment Care: *Hand wash if soiled only.* Do not wring out the garment - roll it in a towel and gently press to remove excess water. Dry flat on the towel, pulling the garment into correct shape, away from direct heat and sunlight. Change a towel as soon as it is wet. To turn sides of the garment, use another towel - put it on the top of the garment, turn sides and remove the towel, which is on top. When your garment is just slightly wet, put it on the rack until dry - do not stretch it. Finally, when dry, slightly spay with anti-static to remove natural static electricity of the wool.
Never use any laundry conditioner - it will remove natural static electricity of the wool and your garment will loose its fluffiness.
‹ Do not store on hangers. ‹ Do not iron.
How to refresh your garment: Put into a steam bath for 5-7 min (the same way like you steam veggies) constantly turning sides and making sure your garment is not too wet. Dry flat. - Irene & Sheep.
