And do you know this very interesting fact, " that the use of French Angora rabbits for wool production in France dates to as early as 1845 in the region of Saint Innocent in Savoy, France. A gentleman named Monsieur Lard developed a large angora herd that provided work for many in St. Innocent. But additionally, he and his wife made it possible for others to start their own angora enterprises.
Mr. Lard and his wife frequently gave to the village women and to the poor several pregnant rabbits. They paid by returning half the offspring at 12 - 16 weeks of age. The villagers cared for their own rabbits and reaped the benefits. They sheared the wool, spun the yarn, made garments according to their skills, and sold their products, whether wool, yarn or garment. It was a win win win situation, enabling the enterprising to support the family and the poor to rise out of abject poverty. No wonder France quickly became the global leader of raw angora wool production."

Here you have natural 100% pure white French angora rabbit fiber. Softer than cashmere, 7 times warmer than sheep wool. Angora is 11 micron in diameter. Very light, airy , fiber has a hollow shaft so, you need just a small amount of fiber and go a very long way. If you blend just 10% angora and 90% wool, this will give your yarn a lovely touch, halo and a warmth too. 1oz of fiber can give you well over 100 yards if you spin finely. If you blend with other fiber you can dramatically increase the yardage.
To qualify for the grade one prime ,fiber must be combed not sheared .And you will have here best of the best. The rabbit feed with a high protein diet for superior fiber quality and brushed often, this is how the fiber collected. Simply brushing the rabbit. The rabbit are cared for with love. They are very healthy and happy “little people”. Take advantage of this fantastic bargain.
