"Antique Rose" - 50/50 Micro-Farmed Angora/Organic BFL Wool 2oz Batt. This is a heavenly blend of Certified Organic Bluefaced Leicester wool, hand dyed in shades of maroon, and undyed white angora rabbit fur, carded together into super soft and fluffy batts on my doublewide drum carder. The angora is from Gracie, a rabbit I raised myself and who now lives on a micro-farm here in Maine. Gracie's a fun and snuggly rabbit who is loved and treated with the utmost care and respect. She gets a very gentle, completely painless haircut every 3 months and produces wonderfully soft, luxurious fiber.
Each 2oz batt is approximately 22"x20"x1" (56cmx51x3cm) and will spin up into a pretty blend of maroon and white with a lovely angora halo.
Why choose certified organic wool? Federal requirements for organic livestock production include:
•Sheep must be fed certified organic feed and forage •No synthetic hormones or genetic engineering •No synthetic pesticides (ex. no dipping in insecticides) •Farmers must encourage sheep health through good cultural and management practices (ex. plenty of pasture time without exceeding the natural carrying capacity of the land)
I believe that wool from sheep and rabbits that are humanely treated fits well with Morning Bright's mission to produce yarn from happy, well cared for animals.
Your items will be shipped within 1-3 days of ordering for ready-to-ship items (all items are ready-to-ship unless they are titled with "Dyed to Order"). Dyed to Order items ship in 1-2 weeks. IMPORTANT NOTE - if your order contains ready-to-ship and Dyed to Order yarns, I'll ship them all together when the Dyed to Order yarns are ready. If you'd prefer to have the ready-to-ship yarns shipped in the usual 1-3 days, you should place Dyed to Order and ready-to-ship orders separately. Please send me a message if this is confusing, and I'll try and explain it better :)

We use very high-quality, non-toxic, washfast, colorfast, professional dyes on our yarns. We rinse very thoroughly after dyeing, but there still may be some loss of color in your rinse water, especially with the darker shades. This will not effect the color of your yarn.
