spun in Argentina, hand-painted in Uruguay
Natural and pure home-spun angora. Best for pain-relief warmers and baby clothing - it maintains warmth without sweating even in a hot summer day. Malabrigo Angora is spun by Argentinean 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. Except ultra warmth, this angora yarn has a beautiful, slightly slubbed due to hand spinning, home-spun texture, and develops an amazingly thick and cozy 'halo'. It is also perfect for accessories: socks, hats, mittens, scarves, and baby knits.
Care note: hand wash if soiled only, otherwise, to refresh, 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. - Yours, Irene & Sheep.
* For information: The colour Tuareg is named after the Taureg people (Berber nomads of Sahara, North Africa), who often wear indigo blue-coloured veils.
