For yarn production we use only carefully selected first class angora wool . The rabbit will be 8 months old untill its wool can obtain the status of first-class angorawool. Angora wool is cut from the rabbit's back and sides by hand with a small scissor. We never use machines because we believe that cutting by hand is calmer for the rabbit, who enjoys to be pampered and seems to like the haircut. Shearing is done by timeintervals of 3 months and byt hat time the angorawool has grown 7cm of lenght.
