Angora and Merino Blend
Humanely-sourced from our own flocks of bunnies and sheep, this 50/50 blend is our most luxurious yarn yet!
The ladies of Handspun Hope carefully blend and hand spin the fibers into generous skeins of lavish sport weight yarn before it is hand-dyed in baths created from primarily native Rwandan plants.
Our goal in creating this fiber was to create an ethically and humanely-sourced angora blend. Much of the world's angora is not created in the same manner. Our rabbits receive the very best possible care. Their spacious custom-created cages are imported from the U.S. and they're provided with dry and safe shelter, high protein feed, fresh vegetable snacks twice a day and a 24-hour caregiver who resides with them. They are gently and carefully sheared every 90 days by our own staff member, a former barber. Rest assured, we love all of our animals and give them the best care so they can produce high-quality raw materials for the ladies working at Handspun Hope.
Handspun Hope is a sustainable fashion brand committed to ethically-sourced materials and minimal environmental impact.
