"Marguerite and her Angora Rabbit"

"Marguerite and her Angora Rabbit"

Marguerite grooms her angora rabbit Pierre, plucking his maulting fur. Then she spins his fur into beautiful angora wool. Sometimes she will cut pieces off for the birds to line their nests.


  1. Both Margeurite and Pierre are gorgeous! And the bolero/shrug is so cute, I wish it were real so I could wear it.

  2. I think this is wonderful Trenna! Really lovely. The description is sweet. I wish I had an angora rabbit. Do cats eat rabbits? Perhaps I don't want one if thats the case lol

  3. There are some great photos of angora rabbits on the web...I was a little alarmed by the amount of fur they have...you can't even see their faces...just a big ball of angora. Pierre is a french angora rabbit.
    Somehow I don't think cats like rabbits.
    I also like Margeurite's jacket, I don't think I could make one like that but I do hope to make some capes soon.

  4. What a gorgeous picture, I love how her hair looks like lovely balls of yarn-y goodness.....

    Take Care.... :)
