4 ounces ofRaw English Angora fiber for spinning, dyeing or blending -Choose Bright White, Golden cream or soft Gray
Ready to use. No need to wash first.
This listing is for natural, un-dyed wool. Angora dyes beautifully to produce bold, clean colors.
Lightly picked and shipped as a cloud.
(Experienced spinners may spin straight from the picked cloud.)
This product can also be found on my Etsy shop:
English angora is a finest of the angora wools, fairly consistent in texture and similar to cashmere. It will have a soft, subdued halo.
(French angora produces the yarn with a dramatic halo - for that classic angora furry effect. Choose the French listing if you are going for more of a 'fur' look)
I clip and sack each fleece as I shear the rabbit.
I thoroughly groom each rabbit and blow out dust and dander from the coat before clipping or plucking.
May contain some small neps/second cuts ( I try very hard to avoid seconds, however the bunnies sometimes wiggle) - this is usually not noticeable as I pick each order on my large swing picker before packaging.
Picking opens and blends the fiber, leaving most of the seconds behind on the tines.
Very little or no vegetable matter.
I don't like staples less than about 1.5 inch, and I prefer 3 inches, so most clips are 3 in+.
Fleeces are stored in paper sacks in a cedar closet and picked just before packaging. I may compress the fiber cloud to reduce shipping costs. Please immediately unpack fleeces and put them in a less constraining container.
