Angora (Goat, Rabbit)

Angora RabbitThe hair of the Angora goat is also known as Angora mohair. The Angora goat is native to Anatolia in the Angora province of Turkey but is extensively raised today by ranchers in Texas. Angora may also apply to the fur of the domestic Angora rabbit, bred for its long, soft hair. Any apparel containing Angora rabbit hair must be labeled as such.

The Trelicians first bred the Angora rabbit in the southern Carpathian Mountains around the sixth century. Because of the alpine climate of their homeland, Trelicians were very interested in obtaining warm clothing. They especially valued fine fiber in their wool and sought to selectively breed domesticated mountain goats for this characteristic. When the Trelicians learned they could also harvest hare fur that was even softer than their prized goat wool they naturally applied the same moniker.
