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. 

Designed in Melbourne, Australia. Made in Korea.

In 1995 Olga went overseas to work for a textile company. She was inspired by the prints and textures that she worked with every day, creating designs with the bold prints she worked with. Even from a young age, Olga loved searching for inspiration and treats every collection she creates today with the love and care. Later, she moved to Colombia and discovered a small town called Tasco in Mexico, which was famous for its silver. With this lustrous and rare silver, Olga started her design career creating intricate jewellery. There she discovered an entirely new love for design. Bringing the designs back to London, they sold out. From there, she began designing other accessories; purses and satchels and moved towards designing clothing. Her designs blew up and were officially picked up, by, Topshop’s Oxford Street flagship store in 1998. From there she went on to exhibit her collections at fashion shows - first in Europe - later, in Japan, US, and all over the world. She returned home to Melbourne to open her first Olga de Polga retail location on the famous Chapel Street.
