Angora fibre comes from the fur of the angora rabbit (rather than from the angora goat) and this breed of rabbits has an extra long coat which is clipped every three months. Angora fibre has two important characteristics, it is whiter than any other natural fibre and it produces a yarn with a beautiful furry halo.
Angora fibre felts easily and must be washed with great care. It is also exceptionally warm and lightweight, and is best used in blends, for example, with a 1/3 angora for warmth, 1/3 tussah silk for strength and 1/3 wool for elasticity.
