Angora is a keratinous textile material, produced by the long-haired Angora rabbit. The Angora rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) is raised solely for its fine and soft hair, unlike other breeds which are produced for their meat and fur. This fibre is one of the “luxury fine fibres”, which also include mohair, cashmere, and alpaca. These speciality wools only represent 3% of world clean wool production, but their price can be 10 to 30 times more than that of sheep wool. Several factors contribute to this difference, including their toughness, lightnesss, fineness, softness, and also their image and reputation. Although there are many articles related to the wool fibers, researches and articles on angora fiber processing are very limited. This special issue aims to put together research results of selected experts on this subject.
