If you so desire, you can purchase one right then and there and all throughout the fair, you can hear little voices begging their parents to take one home. Even Miranda (not so little) found herself falling in love with a few cuties.
I got a quick lesson in angora and learned that the fur of angora bunnies is hollow which makes it much lighter and warmer than wool. I also learned that angora bunnies need only be picked at to loosen their fur and that these bunnies are completely docile having been bred for centuries for their fur -- biters and scratchers, they are not.
This little (okay, big) guy was getting all his nails clipped and lay completely still throughout his grooming session. His fur was gorgeous -- lush, long, and oh, so soft! Should I add an angora bunny to my bucket list, alongside my spinning entry? Tempting... I hope you have a crafty weekend, everyone!
On a side note, I'm excited to let you know that I'm now a regular contributor to KnitLuck and will be writing regular yarn reviews for this terrific knitting blog. My first review is here.
