Silken Ankara - Silk-Blend Yarn (55% Bombyx Silk & 45% Angora Rabbit), 30/2, lace/thread weight
The fur of the Angora rabbit is very fine, soft, lightweight, has great insulation qualities (it is seven to eight times warmer than wool) and can have a silky texture depending on the breed. Angora is excessively warm.
It benefits greatly mixed with silk to provide length, sheen, less pilling and practicality in price and uses. Silk's softness, warmth and luxury are increased.
The soft, strong yarn is delightful to weave and knit, and provides a warm, soft fabric that is lovely for scarves and other garments.
