Informative and Funny
So I've been getting into the different kinds of yarn fibers and I always see mohair but I never new what it was So I looked it up online and found out it was from an angora goat. Then I found out that there are angora rabbits too and the picture was TOO funny had to share it.

I'm confused Which is the rabbit?

And the second one - has that been tumble dried or felted? I can't tell.

The second picture is the rabbit. Angora bunnies get sooo poofy when it's almost time for them to get their annual shearing!

Wow...does the rabbit even have eyes? I just showed that picture to my dad, and he thought it was a sofa!
