Blue Tort English Angora Rabbit Wool from Fire Fly
Natural organic raw bunny rabbit fur from my pretty doe Fire Fly. She is a pure breed of Angora rabbit known as an English Angora. Her coloring is called Blue Tortoiseshell. Her wool is a light beige color over back that shades to a light blue on her flanks, haunches, and belly. I collect her fibers when it naturally sheds by a combination of combing and gentle hand pulling.
- Length: Approx. 4" inches / 10.16 centimeters
- Micron Count: 13.5
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.
