Useful Articles and Hints

This page is here to provide useful articles and hints which will be of use to those who are interested in not only showing and keeping Angora rabbits, but also harvesting, processing and producing products utilising Angora rabbit wool.  The articles on this page are produced with the kind permission of the writer, or have previously featured in yearbooks produced by the National Angora Club.  


We would also recommend three books in particular that are useful for both Angora enthusiasts and also for general rabbit enthusiasts:

1)  A Beginners Guide to the English Angora (Barbara Pratley & Yvonne Hobbs) - Available from Fur and Feather Magazine

2) The Angora Rabbit (Peggy Grant Dalton) - Available from the National Angora Club 

3) The Domestic Rabbit (John Sandford) - Available from Fur and Feather Magazine
