I had the same problem your test knitter did - fuzz everywhere (moral: don't knit this stuff while sitting on a green, corduroy couch). It was lovely to knit with, but the shedding was bad news, the cardie has no give and I'm not sure how well it will respond to ripping out and re-knitting. Has anyone tried this yet? (The ripping, that is.) I have a feeling there won't be much actual angora left. Any suggestions?

Only that I knit a shawl from the summer Knitters in that yarn and despite the shedding, and it certainly does, I love the yarn and the look. So, I guess my advice is to hang in there!
