Angora rabbits are not only a source of enjoyment and quiet company, Angoras are also a source of a wool that is incredibly soft and warm. Handspun into a durable yarn, Angora rabbit wool is eight times warmer than sheep wool, and so light it provides warmth without weight.
Angora wool is continuously renewed and gently harvested during the rabbits natural molting process; thus, the Angora rabbit need never be harmed for it’s wool.
I started raising Angora rabbits because I thought they were so cute and wanted a source of fiber for my spinning. I have had Sheep, but I thought the Angora Rabbits were much easier to deal with. I saw my first Angora rabbit in a pet store, and from there found my first fuzzy critters over 22 years ago.
Angora rabbits are pretty easy to care for. They do not require shots like dogs or cats, and do not cost an arm and a leg feed them like sheep or goats. Grooming is fairly easy when you keep bunnies that tend to not to matt. I have French, Satin and a few Giant/German Angoras that are a joy to keep as they only need brushing every month or so! If you like to brush a lot and have plenty of time to spend with your Angoras, there is also the English Angora.
Angora rabbits come in a wide range of colors. There are over 30 ARBA recognized colors and several that exist but are not showable. The Satin Angora has wool so shiny it looks like colored silk! The depth of color of the Satin Angora together with its shine makes it a sought after Angora fiber for spinning.
