Spinning yarn from rabbit fur!

What an inspiring afternoon learning all about Angora Rabbits and how you can make clothes from their fur.  It is the softest stuff I have ever felt and when knitted into clothes is just divine.  What amazed me about this afternoon was not only has Asphyxia created her own house out of mudbrick, created a garden that supplies oodles of fruit and vege but also has an animal that supplies her with wool to create her own clothes.  The rewards of this type of lifestyle are huge.  Asphyxia mentioned wanting to see if she could live like a “medieval woman”- what a great aspiration in this fast paced, consumer orientated society.
