The Angora rabbit is a domestic rabbit often bred for its wool and is considered one of the oldest domesticated rabbits originating from Ankara, historically known as Angora Though they’re the smallest of the angora rabbit breeds, they’re also extremely productive. Though they’re only 5 or 6 pounds, they still manage to produce an impressive amount of wool for their size. They yield roughly 12-16 ounces of wool per year or roughly 3/4 to 1 full pound of angora fiber. English angoras produce silky fiber on just about every inch of their body, including their face, ears, and feet. That gives them an especially cute “ball of fluff” appearance, but it’s also extremely difficult to maintain.
Their wool naturally sheds every few months and is harvested by “plucking” or brushing. If you don’t stay on top of their grooming as it sheds, the shed hair will just tangle in with the new coat. That means harvesting angora wool is not optional, regardless of whether or not you have a use for it. English angoras have a very low proportion of “guard hairs” mixed in their wool, which means it has a very fine texture and the finished yarn is softer. While the extra fine texture of their wool is sought after by spinners, but it’s also very prone to matting. Add in the fact that they have long wool on their feet and face, the two most mat-prone areas, and they’ll need extra grooming attention.
Angora rabbit wool is prized for its silkiness and warmth. Raising your own Angora rabbits for wool can not only elevate your personal spinning and knitting projects, but it can also be fairly lucrative. “[Angora rabbits] will produce more wool per bunny for less amount of feed and care than any other fiber animal,” said Jenny Smith, owner of Underhill Fiber Farm at Gorham, Maine. “Angora rabbits produce 1 to 4 pounds of wool a year for the space of a three-foot cage [and] 60 bucks a year to feed it.” Angora rabbit wool will also fetch a higher price than the wool from many other fiber animals.
Its body is short, compact, well-rounded, and on average, it can weigh up to three pounds and measures close to three inches in length.
The coat can come in a variety of colors, ranging from white, which is the most common, to one color all over or a shaded-like pattern.
Its temperament, as explained by their owners, is said to be docile, very friendly and placid. Most will get along with other pets as long as they are introduced properly.
When healthy, the average Angora can live six to 10 years.
