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 hutches 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 a rabbit, just like “Bunny”.
The pattern is available on Ravelry and in Strickmich! Shop (also as a printed pattern). We have a limited number of kits containing the yarn and the printed pattern in stock.
