Silken Ankara - Silk-Blend Yarn (55% Bombyx Silk & 45% Angora Rabbit), 30/2, lace/thread weight

Price: $45.00

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.

Our skeins sizes vary a bit in size, ranging between 90-110grams, with the average skein being 100 grams. 

We’ve listed the price for the AVERAGE weight skein.  We charge by the gram, so if your skein is a bit lighter, you’ll pay a bit less and if your skein is a bit heavier, you’ll pay a bit more.  If you need specific yardage for a project, please let us know in the comments section at check out so we can select the correct skein(s) for you. 

Once your skein is pulled and weighed, we will adjust your price and then process your credit card. We will call you if we have any questions.
