Care: Angora sweaters are know for being beautiful and soft, but also know for their tendency to shred. Angkor is a type of delicate wool that comes from the Angora Rabbit. While there is not a lot to do to completely stop the shredding, you can control it to some extent and proper maintenance can prolong the life of your sweater.
How to minimise shredding: Wear it! The fibres will flatten and settle with use. You can place your garment in a plastic freezer bag and put it in the freezer for a few hours. Freezing your Angora sweater makes the loose fibres easier to shake out, so that a vigorous shake will release them all at once, rather than throughout the day.
Wash your Angora only when it needs it. If you're in the habit of wearing a sweater for a short period of time and then washing it, you might damage the fibres. Unlike a sweater made from cotton or synthetics, Angora only needs to be washed when it is truly dirty. You can over-wash an Angora sweater which will wear out the fibres quickly. Hand wash your sweater if you notice dirt or sweat on it using a mild wool detergent and lay flat to dry.
