This is German angora wool. Machine processed at Zeilinger Wool Company in Frankenmuth MI. 68 percent Angora and 32 percent Shetland fleece. The color is a beautiful soft taupe. It spins like a dream. Angora is 7 times warmer than sheep's wool is soft to the skin and develops a beautiful halo when worn. Products made with angora should be hand washed an dried flat. Treat yourself to this lovely buttery goodness. Sold by the ounce I have 80 ounces available. 2 ounces will fill my ashford bobbin. So if you make two bobbins of angora you will need 4 oz of wool roving. That will get you a nice scarf or hat.
