Angora

Named after the Angora goat, this exquisite animal has been bred for centuries for its wool and is demonstrated by spinners at the BRC's two five-star championship shows (held annually each September and January). A popular show breed, the Angora needs dedicated grooming/housing so potential pet keepers should seek advice from a breeder. Obtainable in white and many colours. Weight 7lbs (3.175kgs).
