Icelandic blooms all on it’s own.. add the angora and you’re going to have extra loft and a lovely soft hand. We suppress that on a size 2 to create a mitten that is super warm, and take advantage of it with a size 8 for the shawls. This is a very strong, yet lofty, yarn, and a delight to work with.
When you finish your piece wash it gently in cool water, block dry flat. In the case of an indigo piece, rinse until the water runs clear, usually about 5 rinses does it.
