I’ve been a fan of ethical furrier Ambika Conroy for years – she makes “friendly fur” coats, hats, scarves and stoles by brushing her pet angora bunnies, collecting their fur, and then knitting it into super lux cold weather accessories. Growing up as an animal-loving child, Ambika knew there must be a way to create kinder and more compassionate versions of winter weather necessities, and when she got her first angora rabbit back in 2002, she realized she’d found the answer. Now, 11 years later, Ambika is living the eco-entrepreneur/farmer dream on her angora bunny farm up in The Catskills, New York, with 13 English and Satin angora rabbits, merino sheep, two angora goats, chickens and a dog and a cat.
