Handspun angora yarn



This Page is still under construction!! As of September 17th, 2017


These are angora bunnies, if we weren't going to use the wool to make yarn, they'd be way too much work to have around. By their temperament, they do make lovely pets, but the coat maintenance overshadows that, so they're not recommended to be a pet bunny. The coat needs maintenance, generally a weekly 'brushing' with the steel comb at the least.


I'll try putting in a table which can record how much fiber came from which bunny when. That will be useful to know when it comes time to decide which bunnies should have babies since I'm pretty sure wool production is an inheritable trait. I've not really kept track of the actual quantity each bunny produces, it's been more about quality than quantity.

It's also my first attempt to make a table in HTML/CSS. We will see how it goes.

Ha! Well, kinda boring table, but maybe we can fix that. Gotta fill it in with data as well. So far we have two and a half bunny haircuts to log into our table. Phineus Phogge got a haircut the other day and Gomie got one today. Dozer got half a haircut, but dinner happened before his was done so he will get the rest of it tomorrow.

Sometimes bunny haircuts can take up to several days before they're all done. If the coat is really large and dense, it can take several hours worth of clipping to get it all off. The bunnies like a break every now and then when getting a hair cut, so that also increases the time. A quick haircut is forty five minutes. A long one can be almost three hours. They'll get their hair cut, their nails trimmed and anything else that needs to be done for bunny maintenance, although hair cut and nail trim are the basics.
