Opal

  Meet Opal, my angora bunny. She is so soft and fluffy!  She is the source of all my angora yarn I’ve been spinning. I just pluck it off her and she doesn’t seem to mind. 

I got her last fall, so she is just about 1 year old.  My husband is in the process of building her a new bigger cage for her to hop around in. I’ll show you some pictures when it’s done. 

Some people are nervous about spinning angora, but her staple length is so long that it goes pretty easily for me. I just increased the speed on my wheel a bit and it spins beautifully. 

Let me know if you want to try spinning some. I can sell you hand-plucked angora for $12 an ounce. The stuff barely weighs anything so an ounce gets you quite a bit.
