It is valuable as an insulator for joints and extremities and beneficial for illnesses that inhibit circulation, such as diabetes, chilblains, and heart disease. Although wearing angora and other natural fibers will not heal these diseases, wearing angora and angora blends in garments that cover the affected parts of the body, can increase warmth, circulation and relieve pain, increasing freedom of movement in the affected area.How it works
The fine angora fibers, with their halo, trap warm air against the body and increase the blood flow to the part of the body that they are encircling. As the blood flow increases it removes toxins and lactic acid from the affected area and brings oxygenating nourishment to the affected body part. This in turn brings relief of pain. This is the same principle that therapeutic massage works on.
