Angora Bunny

His name is Remmy and i COULD NOT pass him up. Make sure you Google "pictures of Angora bunny" so you can see what he will look like all grown up if you don't already know. I will have to post pics later my camera is dead.


Here is a link with photos

Wow, you have an angora!? Make sure when you groom him to either keep his fur or sell it to a local crafts-person. Personally, my dwarf mix has enough fur for my liking but angora's are sweet. :) Can't wait to see pics.

Matts-Snowball would be appropriate after looking at pictures. Mine is just a baby. If I had the money I would have snapped up the tiny little brown one I saw there too. Mine is an albino.

Laki-I'm a knitter and crocher so I will definatly be saving the fur. I need to find a way to turn it in to yarn for cheap. Any ideas? My other rabbit is a dwarf mix. My husband is aweful but ironic. Both are males and he named them winchester and remington. *blushes, facepalm*

Men and their guns. We have a lionhead named Swiffer, I'll post a pic of him on a separate thread in a bit.

Have you looked into drop spindles for spinning? I think there's ways to just spin it by hand, I'm not entirely sure though.

Eventually, I'll be getting a couple of angoras, and learning to felt with the wool!!

(Definitely a cute breed!)

Aww! No, I don't know how to turn it to yarn! haha I saved Bunny's molt last fall to see how much fur I could get from her but then I put it outside for birds.

I don't think I quite get the Winchester/Remington referecne :(

I found this video, the bun looks less than impressed, but I find that most rabbits do XD

Those are both guns that hunters use to kill rabbits. I just shortened them to winny and remmy. No one is the wiser. I will look into drop spindles though. I really want to make my own yarn. I can't find my camera cord. Argh! >:(

You can post a picture on this thread too. I love bunnies and I don't do spider it "high jacking" or whatever.
