Angora is one of the most luxurious materials on the planet. The individual hairs are long, with only 11 microns in width, among the thinnest fibers known, extremely light, and as it does not have scales, very smooth. That last quality gives it a slippery feeling and also prevents the individual hairs from sticking or locking to each other. The lightness comes from the small pockets of air within the fiber, which makes it an excellent conductor of heat.
We solely source angora fibres from Swiss breeders who are committed to ethical husbandry and harvest the fur without harm to the animal. Textile artisan Irene Brühwiler selects the fur and hand spins the fibre into a yarn that she then weaves in her own atelier highlighting the natural palette of the rabbits´ furs.
