In 2017, I brought a pair of Angora rabbits home to my little farm in Portugal Cove NL. As I learned to work with my rabbits and their fiber I became excited about the beauty and practicality of nature. I saw a handful of angora which could be carried away by the wind turn into a strand of wool that is strong, warm and beautiful.
My intention through Angora Borealis is to create beautiful wool using natural fibers, non-toxic dyes and Old World techniques which can then be stitched into heirlooms to last for generations.
