Angora Yarn Made Live, Dade City, Fla

Ever wonder where Angora yarn came from? This past December, I witnessed the process at Steve Melton's farm in Dade City, Florida. Kimberly Buchy of The Fiber Mill, Brooksville, was sitting on a rocking chair spinning yarn. She had a big white fluffy thing in her lap that she was pulling clumps of fiber from to roll into yarn. She let me sit by her to shoot a video.

If you haven't guessed, the big white fluffy thing was an Angora rabbit.
