Abstract

Angora rabbit fibers are exceptionally soft and lustrous fibers. The Angora rabbit is a very old breed of rabbit, believed to have originated in Turkey in the town of Angora. As these fibers are also protein based, dyeing characteristics are similar to wool. All recipes for dyeing sheep wool can be used for angora, too. But angora should be dyed at lower temperatures and it should not be boiled. In this review article, knowledge about the dyeing properties of Angora rabbit fibers are given and recent studies on angora dyeing are summarized.
