Fiber Fact: Chinchilla Fiber

You can spin chinchilla fiber! Chinchillas produce a soft, 13-micron fiber that has a 1 1/2-inch staple with up to sixty hairs from one follicle. Because the fiber has a flyaway tendency, it should be handled gently to prevent it from flying around and to prevent damage.
