    This soft, fluffy cottontail which originated from Turkey is a domesticated rabbit and is bred for its soft, long wool. This specie of rabbit is one of the oldest sorts of domestic rabbit hailing from Ankara, historically known as Angora, Turkey. It shares nationality with the Angora goat and Angora cat. This book covers the history and development of the English Angora rabbit, the colours of the English Angora and their genetics, as well as feeding, housing, breeding, grooming for wool and exhibition, clipping and health. There are chapters on the French and German and US Angora breeds.

    Publisher: Diamond Farm Book Pubns, Like New. ANGORA WOOL RANCHING AND GOALS IN RABBIT RAISING By William E. Otto **Mint**. Book is in Like New / near Mint Condition. Will include dust jacket if it originally came with one. Text will be unmarked and pages crisp. Satisfaction is guaranteed with every order/5(2). It is often said that only a handspinner can really appreciate coloureds to the full and only when one handles the wool do the material qualities of the rabbit become apparent. A well-made garment in perfectly matched natural coloured Angora stands way and above any dyed counterpart, and assumes that “exclusive” appearance so sought after.

    The texture of the Angora wool is different throughout the various Angora rabbit breeds. Your market may demand a specific type or color. In commercial productions, most Angoras that are used are white because that allows the wool to be dyed. Larger animals can produce more wool, and females tend to produce more wool than males. Angora rabbits produce some of the softest wool in the world. They can also produce quite a bit of wool with proper care which makes them ideal for the fiber enthusiast. One of the best things about angora rabbits is that their wool does not need to be washed or carded before it is spun so it can literally be spun right off the rabbit.
