Chocolate Jr. English Angora Rabbit Wool from Gingerbread - 1 ounce
Due to the weather, I needed to remove Gingerbread's wool before it was ready to molt. In order to do this without hurting her, I had to shave her fleece as well as hand cut with scissors areas that were a little tricky. I didn't clean up this wool prior to removing her fleece. You get whatever came off Gingerbread. I just weighed it and packaged it. Normally I hand and comb pull my bunnies wool when they are molting. Wool that is not cut is superior to cut wool. This wool has been priced accordingly.
- Qty: Approx. 1 oz
- Length: Varies (shaved/cut jr. wool)
My beautiful natural English Angora rabbit wool is hand & comb pulled right here on my family farm. You get 100% pure fiber with nothing added. Pulling the wool when the coat is naturally shedding does not harm the rabbit & most enjoy the special attention. While I pull & groom them I give them plenty of ear head & cheek petting which they just love!
Angora rabbits need regular grooming & occasional pulling. It is easy to tell when they need to be pulled (about every 100 days) because they start to shed terribly & 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 our bunnies appreciate me reducing their thick warm coat! Angora wool is 9 times warmer than sheep wool!
Fiber that has been hand pulled from the rabbit is superior over shaved or clipped wool. Not only are the fibers longer, stronger, & 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.
