What you will need

  • I spun the yarn from raw Angora Rabbit fiber on my Louet S45 in a relatively fine thread then put 2 together for a nice balanced 2 ply yarn with plenty of integrety and balance but lots of beautiful handspun character. The yarn was then washed and very carefully dyed a lovely Indigo colour in a pot right here in my home studio. The resulting yarn is stunning in its softness with a very slight halo which will develop over time with more washing and wear.
