Rex Rabbits have one of the softest, most luxurious pelts of any animal on the planet. The Rex skins are far softer than our regular rabbit mitts. Using these satin-lined mitts to give your loved one a massage is a true pleasure for both parties. The softness is simply amazing. Just remember not to use oil or lotions or you will have a sticky mess on your hands. We offer these one-size-fits-most.
One mitt is measured to be 10.50" long, 7" wide across the palm, 6" wide at the bottom and 8" from the top of the thumb to the bottom of the glove. It weighed 0.13 lbs.
The mitts can be spot cleaned with any wool wash, such as Eucalan. Do NOT put in a washing machine or get the mitts completely soaked as they will harden.

Why Do Rabbit Skins Often Have Yellow Edges?
The white rabbit skins in particular often turn yellow on the edges
over time. It is common for many people to believe that these are urine
stains from when the rabbits were in the cage. The real problem is
that fat on the rabbit skins runs when the rabbit skins get warm or are stored too
long. If the rabbit skins are fresh, they are usually snowy white--even in
summer. It is only after the rabbit skins have been sitting in a hot warehouse for
months, if not years, that the rabbit skins yellow.
All of the rabbits
that we get from our preferred tannery in Spain are fresh goods. The rabbit skins
have usually been tanned only weeks before they are sent to us on our
monthly shipment. In general, our rabbit skins will be some of the
whitest ones available.
