Does angora shed?

Yes, if it doesn't shed, it is not angora. Angora sweaters are known for being soft and beautiful, but also unfortunately known for their tendency to shed on everything. While there is not a lot you can do to stop the shedding, you can control it to some extent.  The fibre mix in this Portland sweater means it won't shed as much as a sweater with a higher content of angora in it.

What can you do to minimise shedding?

1. Wear it. 

The fibres will settle & flatten with use

2. Freeze it.

Seal in a plastic bag and put it in the freezer overnight. This makes the loose fibres easy to shake out. After freezing, shake vigorously and the loose fibres will shake out all at once rather than throughout the day.

3. Keep it in a moist environment.

One of the reasons angora sheds is because the fibres can get statically charged. Use a humidifier, or hand in the bathroom when you shower.
