      Fluffy Stuff Rabbitry is home to fluffy and friendly, pure bred English Angora rabbits.
Our rabbits our healthy and well cared for. We raise angora rabbits for their very soft wool, which makes the most beautiful shawls and other woolens. Our angoras are also pets and they were show rabbits when they were younger.
  
   Most of our rabbits have now crossed the rainbow, but we have lots of wool from them which we will use in shawls, ponchos, wool hats and more. Our fluffy friends will live on in beautiful shawls.  We will probably get more angora rabbits someday.
 
     English Angoras have the softest wool and are the smallest of the angora rabbit breeds. They usually make about 16oz. of wool a year. English Angora wool is 9 x warmer than sheep wool, so most of the time we mix sheep wool with our angora wool. This mix makes very soft and warm shawls, hats, etc.

  
   We currently have 1 English Angora does and 1 mix breed doe.  Trillium the Angora doe, is 5 years old now. She is retired from showing and enjoying her golden years as a pet wool rabbit.
