Angora fiber is delicate, light and warm at the same time – wonderful for a beautiful handknit shawl! The yarn I used is from Seidenhase in Germany: Claire keeps her beloved Angora rabbits in spacious stables and carefully shears them several times a year – much like sheep. On her website seidenhase.de Claire has put up pictures of the lovely bunnies before and after the shearing. So cute! For this shawl, I have combined an undyed light gray with a slightly variegated handdyed pink from Claire’s dyeing studio. Only 100 g of yarn make a shawl of generous dimensions that is an easy but interesting knit. “Karnickel” is the northern German colloquial pet name for rabbits, just like “Bunny”.
