Raising Angora Rabbits for Fiber
Learn how to raise your own Angora rabbits for wool. We will cover the 4 different types of Angora rabbits, the differences in their wool, basic rabbit handling, care requirements, health, and what to do with your wool. Participants will get hands on experience with grooming tools and techniques and will learn about the different wool types and characteristics. You will get to take home samples of wool from the rabbit you’ve groomed and try spinning the French Angora wool on a Turkish drop spindle. Angora is 8 times warmer than sheep wool, but much brighter and softer. Join Monique to learn how to care for both the wool and the rabbit.
