We now have two new fiber friends, Sage and Rowland. It took more than 2 hours to groom them today. This was the result of their grooming --
-- 2 bags of fiber and a whole lot of matted and felted fur.
They are quite possibly the kindest and gentlest bunnies I have ever met. Though it was tedious removing the matted fur around their faces, at some parts matted to the skin, they did not nip, even once. I just need to work on my stylist skills a bit before the next shearing.
This is Rowland:

I have learned some things about angora bunnies today.
-- Don't groom them indoors.
-- Keep a close eye on the scissors.
-- Do not wear black velvet pants while near these bunnies.
-- Angora fiber is lighter than air.
