This Angora rabbit yarn is 100% handspun Angora yarn 56 yards, 1.40 ounces, 2 ply, DK weight that I have spun yarn from my bunnies Flopsey and Gretchen. This Angora rabbit yarn is taupe colored with a beautiful “halo” that only comes from beautiful bunnies. Flopsey and Gretchen are English Angora. They are a mother/daughter duo here at the farm with similar colors that make a gorgeous yarn.
Gathering the fiber from my rabbits is done by gently combing them therefore, they are NEVER harmed in the process. Angora rabbits and very docile when handled regularly, so grooming them is as simple as setting them in my lap and combing the fiber off. Spinning the fiber into yarn on my Ashford Traveler spinning wheel has become a daily routine. I care for and handle the rabbits daily. This 2 ply yarn is spun fairly consistent, but it is handspun. This yarn has some of those lovely characteristics that only comes from hand made yarns. Angora yarn is 7 times warmer than sheep wool and somewhat water resistant. The warmth and softness of the yarn is like nothing you’ve ever felt!
The jewelry you will find here came out of wanting to be able to wear my “fur” every day. The jewelry accomplished that goal with the beauty of the halo effect of the yarn, without having to wear it in a large quantity. Earrings, cuff bracelets and necklaces like you’ve never seen before.
I have been raising and spinning angoras and their fibers for over 15 years. It has become my passion to create beautiful luxury fiber. That only comes from well maintained bunnies that have been cared for. I have been blessed to have the same rabbits with me for long periods of time and we become well acquainted with one another.
