I adore this yarn. It feels fantastic, silky and fluffy like true angora, and shows the stitches very nicely. I am knitting up Bette from the Angora Haze pattern book, and the lace stitch stands out nicely. There is a wee bit of shedding I would not recommend wearing black knit pants while you knit with it!, but it's nothing compared to the shedding from 100% angora. This yarn lets me knit with a favorite fiber without clouds of fluff all around my armchair.
