Orange Dyed English Angora Rabbit Wool from Marshmallow Fluff Qty: 1/2 Ounce (Oryctolagus cuniculus)
Hand harvest and dyed angora rabbit wool for spinning and crafts. Naturally molted angora fibers have been hand dyed a light orange color. These cruelty free wool can be used as is for fiber arts and felting. Or the wool can be carded into roving for spinning into yarn. I gently harvest Marshmallow Fluff's molting coat by hand using my fingers and a comb so that his new coat can come in even and healthy. This keeps him happy and free from matting.

My beautiful natural English Angora rabbit wool is gently harvested right here on my family farm. You get 100% pure fiber with nothing added. Hand and comb harvesting of the wool does not harm the rabbit and most enjoy the special attention. While I groom them I give them plenty of ear head and cheek petting which they just love.
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 my bunnies hand and comb pulled wool instead.
