    Hey Robin,
    I read an article about Angora fur the other day. Is that something you guys do as well? This article basically highlighted companies in China who were harvesting the fur inhumanely (it sounded brutal). But said there is a way to do it gently, but it takes much longer to get the same amount of fur. Some retailers have stopped purchasing Angora products due to the Chinese manufactures methods. I wonder if there is a market out there looking for humane angora suppliers?

    There is a market for humanely harvested angora rabbit fur. It is very easy to harvest, either through daily brushing and gentle pulling or through clipping. Most folks who raise angoras spin the fur into yarn and sell the yarn. The market is small but somewhat profitable, and tends to be within the hippie/yuppie community.

    Right now we only raise meat rabbits. Angoras don't have a ton of weight to them and the maintenance of that fur is very high. It gets matted and tangled easily. It's not something I have time for at present, but have thought about once the kids are through high school I might consider one. Angoras are very expensive to get into with the lower end rabbits costing $100 or so and the high end champion ones costing upwards of $300.

    Ohhh.. I didn't realize they are different breeds. I'm glad to hear that humane Angora is profitable and easy to harvest. I don't see Angora products going away, but maybe inhumane practices can be controlled if the humane suppliers can fill the market. Thanks for the information!
