Angora Yarn From Start to Finish

We have been dying angora fiber this week. Here is a little peek of what we have done so far.

This is one of our English Angoras:

This is the fiber after we have groomed the rabbit:

This is the green dyed angora fiber:

This is the yellow dyed angora fiber:

These are the two colors together:

This is what they look like after they have been carded together:

This is on my wheel right now:

I am working on spinning it and will post pictures of the finished yarn hopefully later today!!

How beautiful! What a fascinating process~ from rabbit to useable yarn. My daughter had wanted to get angora rabbits. Thanks for the great pics:))

I am working on doing some videos to post of the grooming dying and spinning so that people can see how it is done, and hopefully people will quit asking how we are able to kill the rabbits for the fiber :))) (we dont of course!))
