Montreal Angora Knit Navy
Olga De Polga - Montreal Angora Knit Navy
One of our most popular sweaters, the Montreal Sweater will quickly become a staple in your wardrobe for years to come. Its slightly oversized, boxy cut and fit, flatters many body types and shapes, and is perfect for pairing with pants and skirts, alike. Crafted in an impossibly soft and ethically sourced angora, this sweater will keep you warm and cozy, throughout the greyest of days. The high Angora content makes this sweater light and soft to touch, with the greatest of warmth. We’ve made it in a wide range of colours - just pick your favourite and you’ll never look back.
Angora 80% Acrylic 20%
Angora refers to the downy coat produced by the Angora rabbit. Known for its soft, thin fibres, angora is much lighter and more delicate than wool. Why? The angora fibre is shorter than wool and has a hollow interior, which gives this knit the halo-ey glow that you know and love. The hollow interior, however, does not allow for natural elasticity, which is why all of our angora sweaters are blended with acrylic fibres. If we didn't do this, the sweet knit you love would lose its integral shape.
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. Our 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.
How can I minimise shedding?
- Wear it.
The fibres will flatten and settle with use.
You can place your throw in a plastic freezer bag and put it in the freezer for a few hours. Freezing the item makes the loose fibres easier to shake out, so that a vigorous shake will release them all at once, rather than throughout the day
- Keep it in a moist environment.
One of the reasons angora sheds is because the fibers can get statically charged. This means they'll draw other things (like hair or other fibers) to them. To avoid this, place the sweater in a room with a humidifier before you wear it. A humidifier or steam can keep the air from becoming too statically charged. You might need to do this frequently in the winter when the dry air can create static charges
- Wash the sweater 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 be damaging the fibres. Unlike a sweater made from cotton or a synthetic material, angora only needs to be washed when it's truly dirty. You can over-wash an angora sweater which will wear out the fibres quickly. Wash your sweater if you notice dirt or sweat on the sweater or if it smells. Lay flat to dry.
