Gypsy the English Angora rabbit - before and after hehehehehe
As you can see from the photo the it is really fluffy stuff to work with, softer than cotton buds. The crochet pattern doesn't come out as clearly because of the unevenness in thickness throughout the hand spun wool. But you can buy machine processed french angora from most yarn shops, not as soft as the English angora but much softer than anything else on the market.
Here are some photos of two scarfs I've knitted using the same type of wool. I used a size 12 needle for the grey scarf and a size 20 for the pink one to add some interested. Also the wool is quite expensive so I wanted to make it last longer!
