The recent surge in knitting popularity has brought new attention on natural fiber yarns. Angora yarn has been being found to be one of the most useful natural yarns due to its unique and desirable qualities. It provides warmth, comfort and luxury when applied to any clothing garment.
A docile sweet natured breed of rabbit called Angora has its shiny coat sheared combed through a harmless process that allows us these special knitting fibers.
Since this breed of rabbit is ideal for stationary settings, many urban and residential fans have been able to raise, spin and dye their own yarn comfortably from their own homes!

The time and care in raising and grooming these rabbits is not for all our schedules. This is why Angora yarn can easily be found in many local and online stores. Both handspun and machine wool can be found for varying prices with the former being the most sought for having the full quality of these unique fibers.
Further great news is premade Angora knitwear is sold as such items as coats, sweaters, scarves, and many more!
Angora yarn can also be blended in case of its fluffy quality needing to be reduced. Angora blends will include sheep’s wool or acrylic fibers. These blends will help the very light Angora fiber stay in it its place for more firmness.
Benefits of Angora Garments
If you were a fan of this special look and feel of Angora wool, there are even more benefits to be had. Angora yarn has been proven by research to be seven (yes, seven!) times more warm than traditional sheep’s wool. This makes it one of the warmest fibers known, all the while maintaining its incredible lightness.
The manner in which this light yet warm phenonomen is achieved is from its fibers being hollow strands. The hollow chamber is an insulating element that when spen all over a garment makes for a comfortably warm feeling throughout the body. Great for those colder climates and seasons.
Angora yarn is uniquely light and airy giving it a certain “fur like” halo to its apperance as the fibers raise up from the base of the garment. This has been viewed for centuries as a luxury and quality feature to the clothes made from this product.
Since it is a natural fiber, you can also dye angora yarn any color you’d like.
As we’ve read, this product has amazing versatility. Nevertheless, Angora rabbit wool is still one of the most aesthetically pleasing yarns.
