  1. So cute!
    I didn't see contact info.
    Right now I'm just in research mode. I'd love to show rabbits and I'm also interested in learning fiber arts and spinning. So maybe angoras might be a great fit.
    Could you tell me more about the care and maintance of angora rabbits? Where do you keep your bunnies? They're real furry looking, so a lot of brushing. Do you brush them every day?
    Do you worry about them ingesting their fur?
    Do rabbits need baths? What do you feed them? How much a day?
    The fiber end of it: How much fiber do you get off them? How often do you pluck them? How do you clean and prepare their fur?
    How did you learn to spin? Are there classes you can take? What kind of supplies do you need besides a wheel?
    Any other input?
    Thanks
    Jay

  3. Jay,
    My email is ginspirit3@aol.com, and you can also contact me through my facebook page http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Gingers-Rabbitry/343015485782374

    I keep my rabbits in my rabbitry, a warm shed outside, that has been outfitted with large cages for them. I brush my rabbits at least once a week. This not only keeps them from matting, but also helps prevent woolbloock, and gives me fiber to spin from.

    Angora rabbits do not need baths, doing so would actually be harmful to the rabbit- it would felt and knot their fur to them tight. I started feeding my rabbits 'Manna Pro' rabbit food, but then later switched them, slowly, to the food brand available at our local feed mill. When you switch foods you should do so slowly, mixing the two together in changing incriments, so that the rabbit does not get sick. I feed them around a cup and a half of food every day.

    Fiberwise, the rabbits go through a natural molt every three to four months. You get around 8-12 oz and they're really easy to pluck then, if you aren't careful all of their fur comes off. As long as you keep your rabbit in clean conditions, the fur is ready to spin right off of the rabbit.

    I learned to spin mostly by trial and error, I've never taken a formal class although they do have them. If you need instructions on spinning there are several good videos on youtube on the subject.
