Each package holds one ounce of dyed Angora fiber.
I discovered that I love dyeing Angora fiber. It is a time-consuming endeavor because Angora doesn't like to get wet. It takes a long time for the fiber to get saturated with water and ready to dye. After dyeing, the drying process can be prolonged and then the fiber needs to be carded, but oh, the effort is so worth it!
The resulting fiber can be spun as-is, but blending angora with other types of wool can be so rewarding. My favorite blends are angora/merino, angora/merino/alpaca and angora/merino/silk. So yummy!
I have also used angora for needle felting; it just needs extra needling to ensure proper felting.
A note on 100% angora fiber: angora is very warm; so, a little goes a long way; I usually blend 10%-20% angora into other types of wool. This blend percentage instills angora's softness and "halo" to the final yarn, minimizes the cost of the fiber and blending makes for easier spinning. Angora is slippery and has a shorter staple length.
This fiber comes from my own German Angora rabbits. **Dragon not included.**
Please note: The colors of the fiber may show differently on your screen. I hope that my color name choices give a truer description of the actual color than what may show on your monitor.
