German Angora Rabbits
German Angoras are bred to produce a much larger amount of angora fiber that other angora breeds. They were originally developed about 70 years ago in Germany to create a rabbit with consistent wool quality and quantity. Pure German Angoras are white, German-Hybrids come in colors due to the inclusion of other angora breeds in their background, but still maintaining a high percentage of German. German Angoras are clipped rather than plucked. For more information please visit the International Association of German Angora Rabbit Breeders.
French Angora Rabbits
French Angora rabbits have no wool on their faces and ears, and grow an undercoat that can be plucked, or the rabbit can be sheared. They do not matt as easily as other angora breeds, so they are easier to maintain.
