White English Angora Rabbit Wool from Cloud Dreamer (Oryctolagus cuniculus) Qty: 1 Ounce
This amazing wool is from my English angora buck Cloud Dreamer. His lovely wool has not been cut. Instead, I hand and comb pull it when it is naturally molting. His beautiful fibers are ready to card and spin. You get one hundred percent pure white bunny wool, no fillers or other fibers. It is hand packaged in tissue paper and labeled.
- Qty: Approx. 1 Ounce

Angora rabbits need regular grooming and occasional pulling. It is easy to tell when they need to be pulled (about every 100 days) because they start to shed terribly and their wool comes out very easy. If it is hard to pull, it is not time to pull. Simple as that. In the warmer months my bunnies appreciate me reducing their thick warm coat. Angora wool is 9 times warmer than sheep wool.
I do not cut or shave my bunnies fur. Fiber that has been hand pulled from the rabbit is superior over shaved or clipped wool. Not only are the fibers longer, stronger and healthier; allergens are released when the hair shaft is cut or broken (as would be the case in rabbits that are shaven). So if you find you are allergic to Angora this might be why. Try pulled wool instead.
