Angora hats
 
1 Attachment(s)
LOVE making these. After 7 years of having angora rabbits, I've found a use for the waste or "junk" fiber. The orange & blue bumpy yarns in these were dye experiments gone wrong. The blue was pure wool, the orangey was wool/angora. I plied them with a strand of lumpy bumpy white angora from my "junk" fiber bag!! This is stuff I would have thrown out. The yarn is thick and the hats can be made in one evening! Not only that, they sell better than the "good" ones out of prime, smooth angora.

Yes, very soft & fluffy. Where are the links about the charity hats? These would be good for that.

Cute hats. It's funny what you said about the "junk" fiber hats selling better than the "nicer" ones. These "use up the mistakes" hats pushed you to be creative and people like them, so that is what counts.
