“Incredible” 100% Angora 4 ply
Knitter: Ines Schweiger
4 ply : Woollen spun, unbrushed. 2/16′s NM. Recommended tension: 28sts and 36 rows over 10cm (4″) on No9 (3¾mm) needles. Length: Approx 400m/50g.
In hand knitting terms the actual thickness of the yarn is ‘3 ply’ but due to the fluffy nature of angora this yarn knits well to 4 ply hand knitting patterns and knits beautifully on the machine.
The book “ Vintage Knitwear for Modern Knitters ” by Lise-Lotte Lystrup published by Thames & Hudson (2008) features two delightful patterns using this 100% ‘4 ply’ yarn
