Angora

Description : Long, silky rabbit hair, very soft and warm. The fibres are hollow, which gives fabric made from them a feeling of floating.
Fabrication : Hairs are clipped every three to four months. The fibre is normally blended with wool to give it more elasticity than the original fibre has.
Subtypes : Angora comes naturally in several colors ranging from white to black. Four main types of Angora rabbit are used - English, French, Satin and Giant.
