If anyone is able to offer two Angora rabbits a home, there are two called Biscuit and Betty who are in need of re-homing. The current owner has made a very difficult decision but due to a change in their work circumstances, they are struggling to keep on top of their two English Angora’s wool and feel it is unfair on them. 

They think the best way would be to rehome them to someone who has more time and plenty of experience.  They are 9 months old, male and female both neutered. They are currently kept outdoors. 

If you are interested contact the NAC who will put you in touch with the current owner.

For those in the North, a superb rabbit, guinea pig, rat and mouse show will take place in Doncaster in only 3 weeks’ time. The National Angora Club will be there, so come and talk to us on the stand, see the exhibition Angoras, get clipping and grooming advice and a free spindle spinning lesson. For further details go to the Bradford Premier Small Animal Show website.

Location

The Lazarus Exhibition Hall is ideally situated on the outskirts of Doncaster approximately 2 miles from the town centre.

Lazarus Exhibition Hall:
Doncaster Racecourse
Leger Way
Doncaster
South Yorkshire
DN2 6BB

Are you using your Angora wool? If not, why not?! Ethically obtained by clipping, free, biodegradable, renewable and sustainable. And very, very warm. No expensive equipment is needed. It can be spun on a homemade hand spindle, wet felted using bamboo mats, towels, soap and water and bubble wrap, or needle felted. The National Angora Club products competition is being held at the Bradford Show if you would like to see what can be made. Please send us your pictures if you make items from Angora wool to contact@angorabunny.club

An excellent entry of 16 angoras in our stock show and the London championship show, sadly Alan couldn’t make it so we didn’t have the full 16, however Peter brought down one of Alan’s smoke adult angoras and with help got it groomed and ready for the show.
