Keeping angora rabbits for fiber can be a rewarding activity for urban farmers, especially as people are growing crazy for fiber arts. Because angora rabbits are small and quiet, they are ideal livestock for people who live in close quarters. Plus, they’re easy to care for, needing only daily feeding and weekly grooming.
Harvesting angora wool is simple, and the product can easily become an additional source of income for your household. Watch the video above to find out how easy it is to harvest angora fiber.
Take note, while angoras can be a great addition to your urban farm, they should not be pets for small children due to their grooming requirements. The rabbits’ hair mats easily, which can be a health hazard to the rabbits.
