We have a doe from another litter of the same breed crossing and now that she is wearing her senior coat, her density and softness surpass that of her dad - an English Angora. Her color depth and length of fiber is also better ~ she is a fantastic example of what you want to spin and wear and we're glad to offer you the same!
Look for Honey's photo shoot above.
And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
Do you ever use a hot pack on your sore neck or shoulders? Why not replace it with a gorgeous angora shawl? Not only are you gingerly and effectively warming your neck and shoulders, you're making a statement with your one-of-a-kind accessory that you can take, well, anywhere. We all know, it's not just what you where, but how you feel when wearing it!
In your first year of caring for your angora - whether litter boxed trained and living inside with you, or outdoors in a cozy hutch - you can harvest enough fiber to complete a beautiful shawl; with two you can make another (or scarves or hats) for dear friends or family members. We haven't even addressed the felting, weaving, or other possibilities.... We have a new client that uses our dyed angora for her well-loved felting creations.
