Angora rabbit


Description: This breed of rabbit is recognized by its unusually long hair. In many countries this kind of rabbit is a significant and steady source of income and it is important to notice that, unlike other animals for their fur, rabbits should not be sacrificed, but only trimmed.
Every 3 months you can cut the rabbit’s hair and use it in the manufacturing of angora wool. Beds or articles of clothing made out ​​of this material are considered extremely fluffy and extremely popular. There are several types of Angora rabbits, but the most remarkable is the Satin Angora rabbit, which has a shiny hair and a more intense color.
