Tour De Fleece 2011 - Angora Rabbit
It has little elasticity so I think it would be useful to explore blending Angora with other fibres. I can't see me experimenting much with it though. It is a bit like joining a Gym, it has little appeal to me although I can see why others like it! It did make me itch, I expected to get hives (seriously), my nose tickles and my eyes don't feel great, however even though my clothes are covered in a layer of white fluff I am not sneezing or as bad as I expected. I was reading about someone with a severe wool allergy, can you imagine such an affliction? Rabbit hair I can probably live without, but wool! Perish the thought!
Edit: We all went out covered in white fluff today. The little one had it all over his school trousers and I had it all over my behind! Not a good look!
