This is 1/2 oz of luscious Prime, White, English Angora fiber/wool from my own pet bunny "Kizmit". She is loving and sweet and provides me with her beautiful fiber for spinning. I have sheared her fiber with scissors when harvesting, she dislikes plucking (tho it doesn't hurt her). This is great for spinning and knitting/crocheting...makes super warm (and fuzzy!) homemade items!
About English angoras:
This breed is distinctive because of it’s humorous appearance. With long fur that covers it's ears and face when in full coat, they often resemble small dogs or fur balls with faces (this breed is my favorite!). Their wool is silky, fine, warm and very soft. English Angoras come in a wide variety of beautiful colors. The coat is characterized by having little guard hair in proportion to its wool, and wraps rather tightly when spun, with relatively minimal fluffing (halo effect) compared to some of the other breeds. This is due to the limited guard hairs. Most are calm and docile, but should be handled carefully as they can be easily startled. Grooming is necessary to prevent the fiber from matting and felting and for the rabbits' health. These rabbits are shorn every three to four months throughout the year when they naturally “blow” their coats, similar to how a dog sheds. Rabbits are not harmed during this process.
This can either be processed/spun by itself or added to wool and other fibers to make it go further. A little goes a long way. Angora is 7-9 times warmer than wool!!
Fiber is raw/natural. It has not been washed or processed. From a smoke free home.
I am willing to ship to other countries. Please convo me for shipping prices.
Also note, some countries may prohibit import/export of some fibers. If asking to ship to another country, please verify unprocessed/raw Angora is not a prohibited/restricted item. I can not be held responsible if customs confiscates your package.

For Fiber: If you request shipping outside of the United States it is the BUYERS responsibility to check import/export restrictions as some countries do not permit angora or other fibers to be imported.
