This isn”t a discarded prop from The Labyrinth, it”s a real animal you could probably buy. In fact, you may have even seen one in person yourself already. It”s a wooly mammoth breed of rabbit called an Angora. These domesticated rabbits are bred for their long, soft coat. The Angora is one of the oldest breeds of domestic rabbit and originate from Ankara, Turkey. They are huge, adorable and will make you fall in love with them.
And there”s not just one type of Angora rabbit. There are English, French, Giant, and Satin. Other breeds include German, Chinese, Swiss, Finnish, Korean, and St. Lucian rabbits.
All of them have slightly different wool and coloring.
But they are all giant fuzzballs you”ll want to cuddle for hours.
Angora rabbits are also popular pets, as they allegedly don”t affect allergy sufferers as much as other pets.
And of course, they are also bred for their fluffy wool, which can be sheared, plucked or combed.
Keeping these bunnies fluffy is hard work, though. They require a lot of grooming.
It depends on the breed, but most Angoras weigh between 6-12 pounds.
Each breed”s wool has a different application. Some are good for spinning while others are preferred because of their coloration.
Their fur is amazing and I want it. I want it and I want to sleep on a pile of Angora rabbits. (Or a blanket made from Angora wool, whichever happens first.)
