(pronounced an-GOR-uh)

Also referred to as angora wool, this natural protein-based fiber is used in textiles and especially in yarns for knitting. Distinct from mohair, which comes from the Angora goat, Angora fiber comes from the downy coat of the Angora rabbit. Angora is known for its thin fibers, which are silky, soft, and lighter and warmer than wool.
