Angora Wool Clothing Is Luxury, Comfort, and Warmth Defined!
The lightest and softest knitting fibers ever known are Angora fibers.
The lightest and softest knitting fibers ever known are Angora fibers. This type of fiber is produced from the harvesting of the plush and silky coats of the rabbit breed Angora. The end result of this production is spinning material that would make any clothing apparel luxurious, high class and fashionable. Beyond its beauty, there is another advantage. Angora wool is 7 times warmer than sheep's wool which makes for a very comfortably snug garment. The fiber production market considers Angora wool of the utmost highest quality available.
Each fiber is on average 10 to 13 microns thick, with a micron being the width of one millionth of a meter. Its uniquely special feel comes from its fibers naturally having a very soft and silky texture. In addition, the fibers are hollow which allows for their touch to have a certain lofty, floating feel to them. Each fiber naturally raises on its own due to its lightness. When on a garment, this makes for the wool to have a "fur halo" like fluffiness as they all stretch out from the base of the garment.
Angora wool has a fluffy lightness that is extremely comfortable on skin. In addition to its soft and cozy texture, it has a thermal effect that makes fashion clothing warm without having the effect of weighing you down. This is accomplished by the wool allowing the skin to breathe while simultaneously absorbing moisture. This is what produces the body's steady temperature at the surface of the skin which then allows for a comforting, warm feeling. On top of it all is that blood circulation is improved which creates a therapeutic effect advantageous for those with conditions including cold painful joints, muscle tension, or circulatory disorders.
The Angora rabbit is very soft natured and docile. Angora rabbits shed their fur regularly. The wool molts naturally and it is combed off the rabbit when it is 'mure'. They receive no harm and experience zero discomfort during the grooming routine. The year round grooming procedure they must receive is of the utmost care as this is required for them to produce their highest quality fibers. They make wonderful pets, are gentle with children, and bestow us the gift of their plush, silky coats.
It is a truly special and unique moment when one first touches an Angora woolen garment. It is hard to forget.
