Classification of rabbit fur fabrics
Rabbit hair is a very valuable fabric in the wool spinning industry. Rabbit hair fabrics are very comfortable and warm and are deeply loved by people. So what are the classifications of rabbit fur fabrics?
Coarse hair is also called gun hair or needle hair. It is the longest and thickest fiber in rabbit fur. Straight, hard, smooth, not curved, 10-17 cm long, 35-120 microns fineness. Generally only 5% to 10% of the total cost. A few can reach more than 15%. The shag is highly abrasion resistant and protects the fuzz from felting.
Type II wool refers to the presence of two fiber types on one wool fiber. The fibers in the upper half are straight but not curled, with a well-developed medulla layer with coarse hair characteristics, while the fibers in the lower half are thinner and irregularly curled, consisting of only a single row of myeloid cells, with the characteristics of fine hair. The content of the coat is relatively small, generally only 1% to 5%. Due to the large difference in diameter at the junction of the two types of wool, it is easy to break the thread, and the wool spinning value is low.
Collecting wool is the result of the process of raising long-haired rabbits. Reasonable hair collection can not only promote the growth of rabbit hair but also significantly improve the quality of rabbit hair.
