    Default Would you wear something made from angora Wool?

    Are rabbits harmed for the wool?

    Only if it were from my own pets or if I had a friend who had Angoras where I got the wool from. Any animal kept for anything - wool, eggs, feathers collected from birds, etc can be neglected so you have to know the animals Are cared for well.

    I love the feel of angora, but i wont buy it.

    I actually had this question in my mind the other day when I picked up a lovely jumper, but when i checked the label it said rabbit angora, so i walked away.

    Not unless I used hair from my bunny ( if he was an angora). And even if I used my buns hair, I would trim it would scissors, not shave it with whatever!

    I bought a lovely cardi once without even looking at the actual wool type.....got it home, noticed the label and took it back!

    My heart has joined the thousand, for my friend stopped running today.
