Orkney Angora Elsness DK

A versatile yarn blending finest, grade 1 angora with best quality (18.5 micron) lambswool. Suitable for appliqué, crochet, hand embroidery, knitting, needlepoint and other projects.

This yarn exhibits all the finest qualities of angora and has been commissioned to replace our 100% angora yarns. Its versatility and quality are demonstrated by its suitability for use in accessories, such as socks and gloves, as well as exclusive designer knitwear. Available in 36 superb shades, this beautiful yarn demonstrates a delightful lustre when dyed, augmenting the natural beauty of the yarn.

It is worth noting that due to the dying process, shade variations can occur from dye batch to dye batch. As such if you are planning to use more than one for a particular project, we recommend alternating skeins in order to achieve a more natural gradation.
