The Super Eight are doing great. The bunnies that have survived the Calici disaster have come back strong and I am so relieved that we have some of our precious bloodlines left. We will have to introduce more bloodlines and the search is on ! English Angoras are not that easy to find. It is like with all rare breeds, whether you are talking about sheep like the teeswater or Jacob that have all disappeared from the Australian landscape or the heritage Australian Angora goat that is definitely on the endangered list with so little breeding females left.
But the fight goes on and we will do our utmost , together with some fabulous breeders in Australia to keep the diversity ad the breed alive. The rebuilding will begin after Bendigo ! That’s a deal.
Todays offering is GaGa Bunny Tops! Yes THE GaGa Bunny tops that glow in the dark I have been told…lol…and look absolutely magnificent ! Spin it, felt it, wear it as it is: you will be hooked once you get your hands on one and as most of us Fibre fans know: one is never enough…lol
Well, I won’t keep you waiting any longer : here are all the GaGa Bunnies lined up and ready to shine!
You can email me on ixchel at rabbit dot com dot au or message me on facebook or ravelry where I am Ixchelbunny. I will email you right back with all your order details and payment methods. Any questions? Please don’t hesitate to ask! Always happy to enable.
Thank you so much for your help and support !
