Angora rabbits are not only great pets, great show animals but also valuable in their ability to provide the most luxurious wool for fiber projects. The NARBC installs a Wool/Skein/Garment contest at the convention for the rabbit breeders/exhibitors and also fiber artists to show off their creations.
