Long ago and far away, Clara and I bought a beautiful French Angora bunny. He was a tiny little thing, mostly tawny fur and a twitchy little nose. I rationalized bringing him home from the country fair by claiming I was going to learn to spin and turn his fur into luxurious, soft yarn to knit and hook with. Not. Ash lived a long life before heading to the Great Rabbit Hutch in the Sky and I never learned to spin and didn't save an ounce of his fur.
So I was thrilled to find Bay Haven Angoras at the fair at Longwood on Saturday. I was so thrilled I forgot to take photographs of pure white four month old Cotton and her two gray brothers. But I bought two skeins of the most gorgeous, softer-than-cashmere yarn. I'm not sure what I will make with it -- hook an Angora bunny? Or keep it on my desk to fondle on a daily basis? It is just lovely stuff and I am happy to have it.
Lisa, who owns Bay Haven Angoras, spun the yarn herself. She doesn't have a website, but she does have an email address, so if you're interested in buying a bunny or some yarn, you can contact her here: email@example.com.
