This yarn is the worst! It sags and fuzzes up so much you lose any stitch definition, even a simple rib. I thought to use the *expensive* sweater I'd made from it as an around-the-house thing since it was too unattractive to wear out yet did feel kind of nice, but I can't because it sheds so much it ruins whatever else I'm wearing and gets all over the furniture. I really regret buying it.

I think that you get what most people would expect from a yarn with such a high percentage of angora. Angora yarns are supposed to have a soft halo that grows with wear and are not suitable for intricate cables. Personally, I have enjoyed the peacock blue accessories that I have made from this yarn, but I know better than to wear them with black. Angora, like the rabbits it comes from, does shed a bit, but what soft luxury.

I used this to make socks because of the nylon content and it makes the BEST, yummiest socks ever. I wish all my socks were as soft. The fuzz is what you expect from angora. The more you wear the more it blooms. Lovely!
