Does anyone keep angora rabbits for their fur it’s something I’m really interested in. If so how often do you collect their fur and how much yarn does it make?

I haven't checked recently, but there used to be a lot of information on this in the Rabbit section of this forum. Are you talking about FUR with the pelt, or the wool?

OP is talking "yarn" so I am assuming combing out fiber from angoras. Myself, I don't know anything about that.

Rabbit pelts can be sold but don't bring enough money to make it worth the effort to skin the rabbit and prepare the hide. It's not even worth selling them as a byproduct of meat production.
