Announcement   Welcome!! Thank you for stopping by the shop.
Shipping update- I will refund shipping overages back if over $1 difference. I am finding with more then one item is ordered the etsy auto shipping is to high, so I want to reassure my customers I will refund the amount over the actual amount.
I strive hard to give you quality products with good customer service. Its important to me that your visit to the shop is a good experience and if you ever have any questions about the shop, products or even the rabbits that grow the beautiful wool - please feel free to email me, I am happy to help.
I raise purebred German and German/ English angora rabbits on my small Michigan fiber farm. They are so adorable and sweet - and the wool - the wonderful wool they produce. Angora is so soft - I love the way it feels next to the skin - oh so silky soft. Having a skein of yarn, roving or hand made hair scrunchie made with angora fiber is a a little bit of luxury to enjoy in this busy life.
On my Michigan farm- I am hands on with my rabbits every day, making sure they come first with their care and health. Happy, healthy rabbits produce beautiful wool. I adore my rabbits!
All my angora rabbits are gently sheared as they sit on my lap, no rabbit is harmed. All the angora fiber used in my products come from my rabbits, none is from a wholesaler or outsourced.
Our farm is also home to a couple off angora goats and a llama that keeps watch over them.

My shop "Keeping Traditions" sells angora rabbit fiber, angora roving in natural white or dyed colors, budget batts, pure angora hand spun yarns, mill spun yarn and hand crafted items including pure angora mittens. Pure angora hand crafted items make nice gifts for birthdays and holidays. Mill spun yarns are made here in the USA with the fiber from my angora rabbits. I hand spin all the purely angora yarns, and blended yarns myself on a Rose spinning wheel. My Country Spinner is used the for art yarns using kid mohair, and sourced wool from small family farms. Its important to me to support other small family farms.
If their is something special your looking for just convo and I will see what I can make for you. I can do custom spun yarn blends or pure angora yarns, mittens, cowls, and other gifts. Just convo and we can talk about what you are looking for.

Enjoy looking around and thank you for visiting the shop.

About

A Fiber Dream Come True

It all starts with the animals every day, I head out to do chores every morning. It so good to see happy active rabbits and goats, I know they are healthy and doing fine. The llama watches over them and keeps them safe. They can be so fun too, each has their own personality and traits. I have some rabbits that want to climb into my arms and have petting time. The goats can be so entertaining, they are really like kids the way they play in the yard. I check over and see if anyone is going to need shearing soon. If I find they are getting close I make sure to set aside some days dedicated to shearing. Shearing days are so rewarding when I bring in all the beautiful wool. After chores are done I head inside to decide what to work on today. Some days its sorting wool, spinning a new yarn or working with the dye pots. I can easily spend a day or more working on a hand knit or crochet item like booties and mittens.
Today I decided I will do some dyeing. I just received back my roving from the mill. Its so soft, a 85% angora blend. I gather my supplies and soak my roving to prep it for the dye bath. I mix the dyes and get the pots set up. The batches are small, I look for color ideas in how I see them in life and nature. After the final rinse I lay them out on a rack to dry which can take a few days. After I weigh the roving, tie it together, and add the tag. Its now ready to put on etsy. I can spend many days dedicated to just dyeing fiber, it takes time but its fun to add some color to some of the fiber.
I feel so blessed to have such wonderful animals and fiber to work with every day. Having my small fiber farm has been a Fiber Dream Come True.

    I enjoy spinning, felting, knitting and crocheting. I have been working with the fiber arts for many years and I still look forward to each day. I adore my beautiful rabbits, goats, and llama that provide me with so much lovely fiber.
