Yarn

A note about our Angora processing Angora yarn is famous for shedding, but this is because large commercial mills use angora fiber that has a very short staple length, and then is loosely spun. The angora fibers work their way out of the yarn, ending up on you and everything else. We harvest the angora wool at a staple length of at least 2½", and have it spun tightly, so it does not shed in the manner of commercially spun angora.
