Most Angora wool origins from China, with some exceptions in Europe, Chile, and the United States. Angora wool is one of the softer types of wool, its known to be very silky, fluffy and warm. There are different kinds of Angora rabbits, and different ways of gathering the wool. Choose Angora wool that has been shorn of the rabbit, not plucked, and try to choose traceable Agora to make sure animal welfare has a high standard. Make sure the Angora rabbits has not been raised in cages only for their wool. Caregora is a good certification.
