At this time, we have a few Angora Rabbits available! For additional information/pictures, feel free to send us a private message or an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to get back to you!
Spring time and warmer weather = shearing season! Along with shearing season comes more fiber from our UPS/USPS carriers! With that said, we just wanted to let everyone know that we are doing our very best to stay true to our turn around time and take good care of everyone's individual batches of fiber!
Feels good to be back after a busy weekend in Maryland! Today's agenda... Scheduled Mill tour, cheese making 101, luncheon, and processing! Never a dull moment!
So proud of my girl Madi Shaw and can't thank Kelly Miller enough for teaching Madi how to use her knitting machine. She was able to finish her dress just in time for Maryland Sheep and wool festival. It was a blend of fiber from Queen Bee a Leicester longwool given to Madi a few years ago from Kelly. It also was awarded the Leicester article special award! Thank you Willow Brook Farms for donating this award.
It's the final countdown to this year's Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival this weekend!! Its been a whirlwind this week, but we are super excited! We've been working on some last minute things in the mill before we are headed to the fairgrounds Friday! We will be in the Main Expo Hall again this year at booth C21! Look forward to seeing everyone there!
Wow... what a weekend!! I am really glad that I decided to go along with my Mom, Madi, and Matt to Angora Nationals this past weekend. We had a wonderful time and our rabbits were very well received on the tables! The most tresured part of the trip for me were the many memories that we made, the necessary trip to Bd's Mongolian Grill, and the good conversations that I had with people I only get to see a select few times a year. As far as our rabbits, I am very excited to anno...unce that Shaw's Fuzzy Friends Panera (my Giant Angora Junior Doe) won 1st in her class out of 9 and Best of Breed not only in the National show, but in both of the Michigan All Breed Shows yesterday. I have to thank my sister Madi Shaw for giving Panera to me to coat out from a litter that she bred and raised. Matt's does also placed right behind Panera with his 2 junior does as well! My sister Madi had an amazing day with Best of Breed Giant Angora in the National Show and both All Breed Shows as well a Opposite of Breed English in the National Show and Best of Breed English in both All Breed Shows... she went on to receive BIS and RIS in Show B with her English and Giant and BIS in Show A with her English! We also participated in the Wool/Skein/Garment contest all of which received great comments and placings. We were bummed that we couldn't stay for the show today, but we were more concerned about getting the rabbits back home, settled, and selfishly wanted to sleep in our own beds tonight! Thank you very much to the Michigan Club, Narbc, and all of the volunteers for hosting such a fun National Show! We had a lot of fun, but we are glad to be home again! Congratulations to everyone on their well deserved wins this weekend, both in Open and Youth!
