The alliance of angora and baby alpaca gives a luxurious yarn perfect for carrying out cozy projects. This yarn of extraordinary softness and touch, will allow you to realize works of exception; A single point will suffice to sublimate this yarn.
The fiber of the rabbit will "exteriorize" during knitting and will give you the "hairy" aspect of an angora yarn.

Claire has rabbits for her pleasure and the animal welfare is totally respected; Every 100 days, the natural moult of the animal is helped by a plant, the lagodendron (Mimosa of Africa) which has a depilatory effect; The fiber is harvested by hand very easily and without pain for him. Helping the rabbit eliminate his fiber is essential for him! Otherwise he removes them himself, swallows them, which encumbers the stomach and ends up making him die ...

We select French breeders, which allows us to have a low carbon impact and especially to have a 100% French thread.
We do not use the carbonization process to destroy the vegetable matters, we skirt the fleeces by hand.
The washing is done with a soap labeled OEKO TEX and we do not do superwash treatment (see article) Nor softener bath to restore swelling to the thread.
