Grooming a Wool Beast!

Our "Tawny" is what you would call a "Wool Beast." She has a coat that is twice as thick as any Angora rabbit I have had or bred. I am still waiting to get an offspring with such a lush coat.

It takes 2 days to clip her down with shearing scissors, clipping about an inch to 2 inches at a time. It is daunting and when she has had enough you pick up where you started the following day.

Her staple length is at least 8 inches long which makes it so fun to spin her wool. 

Somewhere deep in all that wool is our "Tawny."
