A precious German angora yarn handspun by Lada Kirisenko - a famous spinner and weaver. Rusangora® Art Farm is a member of International Association of German Angora Rabbit Breeders (IAGARB). There are 110 rabbits on the farm, and they are grown and groomed with the highest, humane standards. Each rabbit is a part of a big Family, and has a unique name based on her/his character: Twirl, Twist, Golden Baby, Bosya, Fearless, etc. Since rabbits live in love, eat well and receive professional care, sometimes 20 hours a day, they produce very healthy fiber, we would say 'fiber with a soul'. Spun into hanks, it feels like real, fluffy and warm little rabbits!
