This is the softest yarn I have ever spun. The wool I used to spin this yarn came from my satin angora rabbit Figaro. Satin angora is silkier and has more sheen than the other breeds of angora. This is a chain plied (3 ply) dk weight yarn. It measures 175 yards. It is naturally bright white but should take dye well. Make that special gift or really spoil yourself.
