100% English Angora handspun yarn from two of my own sweet rabbits. This yarn is from chocolate tort rabbits and has a beautiful, intense and warm color. It's oh-so incredibly soft to the touch, and could be made into anything for next-to-skin wear. It is a lighter sport weight, 2-ply yarn that would be beautiful for weaving or knit/crochet lacework. Skein is 1.3 ounces. This yarn was created here from beginning to end - the rabbits were born here, sheared here, and it was handspun by me on an Ashford Traditional spinning wheel.
The wool comes from two brothers, Foggy and Rocket (pictured above at 12 weeks old, just before they were sheared). These boys are now all grown up and live as spoiled pet wool producers. They are both absolute characters, Rocket always had a mind of his own and wasn't afraid to show it, whereas Foggy was fun, loving, and enjoyed every minute of attention he could get. He loves wearing his little dog sweater after being shaved!
Wool is humanely harvested with scissors, and my rabbits are never injured in the process. They are happy and content through the whole thing. Hand wash in cold water, without any agitation, and air dry.
