Lynx English Angora Rabbit Wool from Creamsicle
Natural organic raw bunny rabbit fur from my pretty doe Creamsicle. She is a pure breed of Angora rabbit known as an English Angora. Her coloring is called Lynx aka lilac agouti. Her surface wool is a light tan ticked with lilac tipped guard hairs. Her coat has intermediate bands of tan, alternating with shades of light lilac to white under color. I collect her fibers when it naturally sheds by a combination of combing and gentle hand pulling.
I have provided seven photos of her loose wool that I collected via slow & gentle hand pulling and combing followed by one photo of her coat while she was still wearing it after grooming. This photo is then followed by a photo of her coat (with her in it) under the blower. You can see her coat to the skin. Next are four photos showing the Zero Waste packaging in the three sizes I currently offer. Last, I have included one photo at the beginning & one at the end of Creamsicle. The first was taken in the spring, the last was taken in the fall.
•Length: Approx. 4" inches / 10.16 centimeters
My beautiful natural English Angora rabbit wool is gently harvested 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 and most enjoy the special attention. While I pull and groom them I give them plenty of ear head and cheek petting which they just love!
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.
