The Ten Most Expensive Fabrics - #8 Angora

Where does our search for the ten most expensive fabrics take us this week? Capt'n John has discovered that Fabric #8 is Angora. Read on to find out how this rabbit is connected to this expensive fabric.

Here is why Angora is the #8 Most Expensive Fabric:


"Angora wool is made from the soft and fluffy hairs of Angora rabbits, which are raised in places like France, Italy, and China.


Angora fabric is known for its softness, warmth, and durability. Angora wool is commonly used in apparel such as sweaters and suitings, knitting yarn, and felting.


Angora wool is harvested (plucked or shorn) every three to four months throughout the year.


Of the five Angora rabbit breeds used for fiber production — English, French, Satin, Giant, and German Angoras — the German Angoras are the most productive fiber-producing breed, generating between three-quarters and a pound of wool every year. However, while other Angora rabbits can be plucked for their fiber, German Angora rabbits require shearing.


“The German is the only Angora rabbit that does not have the shedding gene, so you have to clip them,” explained Jenny Smith, owner of Underhill Fiber Farm at Gorham, Maine. “The others all shed every three months. Pure Germans are bred specifically for wool production, but they only come in white.”


The cost of Angora fabric varies depending on the retailer and the quality of the fabric. On average, it can cost anywhere from $40 to $100 per yard. The cost of a good Angora Rabbit can be from $50-$250+.


As with all uses of animals, it is important to make sure you are buying from a source that treats the animals ethically."


Stay tuned and come back next week to find out what the #7 Most Expensive Fabric is.
