Black English Angora Rabbit Wool from Boo
This gorgeous wool is from my English angora doe Boo. Her wool has not been cut. Instead, I hand and comb pull it when it is naturally molting. Her fibers are ready to card and spin. In the second to last photo you can see Boo's coat under the blower during one of her grooming sessions. You get one hundred percent pure bunny wool, no fillers or other fibers. It is hand packaged in tissue paper (Zero Waste) and labeled.
•Qty: Approx. 1 oz
•Length: Approx. 4" inches
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 our bunnies appreciate me reducing their thick warm coat. Angora wool is nine 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, 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. You many want to try pulled wool instead.
