• Short Summary

    Mrs Hare keeps Angora rabbits for their fur which she spins and knits into jumpers.

  • Description

    Dartford, Kent.

    Various shots show Mrs Suzanne Hare tending to her Angora rabbits at her home.

    She takes a white one out of his cage and carries him to a table in her garden. She brushes him and switches on a vacuum cleaner and fluffs his hair up with it (presumably it is blowing, not sucking). Then Mrs Hare pulls out great clumps of the rabbit's fur and puts it in a pile which she carries back indoors.

    We then see Mrs Hare spinning the Angora wool on a spinning wheel. Later, she sits on the settee with her cat, knitting Angora wool into a jumper.
