[spinning] Cormogora? Angormo?

Pulled out two 4oz bags of angora/cormo that I picked up at the 2009 NH Sheep and Wool Festival:

Angora + Cormo


It really didn't draft all the easily or smoothly, so the finished yarn is lumpy/bumpy. But I think that just makes it look more like spun clouds:

Angora and Cormo


Which is what this yarn feels like- clouds. I think the blend is 50% angora/50% cormo. This yarn would make beautiful cables.

Not sure what the finished yardage is but it's a dk- or light worsted-weight.

Oh, that looks lovely! You'll want to knit something you can cuddle up to your face...
Maybe a hooded scarf? Or a cowl and hat combination?
If the yarn was heavier, something like http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/through-the-woods-2 would be nice.)
