RABBIT SKINS When you buy rabbit skins be aware that there are many grades in the fur industry. Not every dealer explains this and you can be disappointed in a purchase made for price only. On an arbitrary scale of 1 to 5 for size, fur quality, price we would judge these offerings as at least "3"'s, and a very good value. This is highly subjective, but may help you.
