hey, that's pretty cool!  not exactly "animal friendly" but def. is kind of recycling don't you think?  I mean, I imagine if people like Carol didn't take them, they'd just be thrown away!
Just out of curiousity, why wouldn't wool be animal friendly? My shetlands would be absolutely miserable if I didn't shear them . . . . . Just curious.

for me, animal friendly means wool that comes from small farms, where I know the sheep are loved and well cared for.  ie: not large factory sort of farms. That is very imporant to me.  i know all domesticated sheep need to be sheared, but not all sheep come from small farms, and that is where I insist on buying my wool.  I like to know the farmer and their ethics before I buy from them.  I  like my sheep to have names, not just be a "product".  I do not wish to support large "factory" farms.  Hope that makes sense!

That's cool! I've gotten my knickers in a bunch a couple times over PETA's anti-wool campaign - a lot of people won't bother to dig deeply enough to find out that their campaign is actually based on the Australian sheep industry, which can sometimes get into some questionable practices and definately into big agri-business. I hated having my farm lumped in with several thousand head operations Wink  Have had to deal with people coming up & being hateful about me selling yarn & the such in a farmer's market which is insulting when you're on a first-name basis with your sheep & bunnies - specifically Bo, Duncan, Garnet, Ebony, Snickers, Hamlet, and the 5 2-week-old yet-to-be-named French Angora bunnies  Grin

Well, a girlfriend and I bought 5# between us. I tried emailing to find out what other fibers/colors were available, but no response since Wed or Thur...you'll must be overwhelming them with orders!

I can't wait. Even though I'm so behind in projects, it's not funny.  Cheesy

Yeah, the bunns are really sweet right now - we'll probably be looking to sell a few of them as fiber pets, but they're still a bit young. They're just starting on water & bunny pellets, and are just absolute fluffballs right now:

omg Angora is sooo soft. I've never felt a French Angora bunny...is it different? I think Angora must be the softest and most expensive fiber out there...Well its like $9 for a 65 yard hank at my LYS.
