MALABRIGO ANGORA [100% Hand Spun Pure Angora Rabbit Wool]


Malabrigo ANGORA,
spun in Argentina, hand-painted in Uruguay


Malabrigo Angora is an artisanal, home-spun, rustic-style angora rabbit wool yarn. It is spun by Argentinian artisans and hand dyed in Uruguay by Malabrigo's Dye Artists. It is a tightly S-twisted single ply, hand-dyed in semi-solid or multi colours. This angora is ultra warm, has a beautiful, slightly slubbed due to hand spinning, home-spun texture, and develops an amazingly cozy, thick 'halo'. It is perfect for accessories: socks, hats, mittens, scarves, and baby knits.

* For information: The colour 98 Tuareg is named after the Taureg people (Berber nomads of Sahara, North Africa), who often wear indigo blue-coloured veils.
