Does this Angora Sweater shed?
Yes. If it does not, it is not ANGORA - or it composed of longer fibres. Although longer fibres shed less, the process involves plucking the rabbit - which is cruel. Olga De Polga's fibres are shorter because the rabbit is shorn - a cruelty-free process.
Angora sweaters are known for being beautiful and soft. Unfortunately, they're also known for their tendency to shed on everything. Angora is a type of delicate wool that comes from the angora rabbit. While there's not a lot you can do to completely stop this shedding, you can control it to some extent. And, proper maintenance can prolong the life of your sweater.
