Abstract

The Angora rabbit fiber has a smooth texture which makes it difficult to spin. Because of this reason it is usually blended with other fibers such as wool to improve its performance both in processing and fabric wearability. In this study, general knowledge on the yarn and fabric production from angora rabbit fiber and its end-uses is given.
