Breed Information

The Satin Angora is a relatively new rabbit breed that was developed in the late 20th century. As the name suggests, it combines qualities of the Satin and Angora breeds. Satin Angoras have the luscious satin fur of the Satin breed combined with the long silky locks of an Angora. This gives them an exceptionally soft, shiny, and silky coat.


The Satin Angora breed was developed in the United States in the 1980s and was first recognized by the American Rabbit Breeders Association (ARBA) in 1988. It is thought to have originated from cross-breeding programs between Satin rabbits and French Angora rabbits. Breeders were aiming to create a rabbit that had the sheen and luster of a Satin coat along with the long fiber length of an Angora.

After the initial crosses were made, breeders selectively bred the offspring over successive generations. They chose rabbits that showed the desirable traits of both parent breeds. This led to the establishment of the Satin Angora as a new breed that consistently produced rabbits with shiny, smooth, satin-like fur and long silky locks on the ears, face, and feet.


The Satin Angora has a commercial body type, weighing 5 to 7.5 lbs. The body is compact and well filled out. The head is slightly rounded with medium sized upright ears. The ears are heavily furnished with long fringes of silky fur. Satin Angoras also have fur muffs on their faces and long feathering on their feet.

The coat is what really defines and distinguishes this breed. It has a satiny sheen and texture, described by ARBA standards as having a "bright, glistening sheen." The guard hairs are short and smooth while the wool undercoat is abundant and extends outwards from the body. The coat length is medium to long. The fur on the ears reaches 4 to 6 inches in length.

When properly groomed, the fur on a Satin Angora flows back in a shimmering veil. The coat comes in a wide variety of colors, including agouti, chinchilla, sable, seal, tortoise shell, black, blue, chocolate, lilac, silver marten, and more.


Satin Angoras have pleasant, calm temperaments. They are not particularly active, preferring instead to sit quietly while their owners brush and pet them. They become very comfortable being handled and do not get easily stressed or frightened. With regular gentle handling from a young age, Satin Angoras become quite docile and relaxed.

Like other long haired breeds, Satin Angoras are sensitive to heat. Care should be taken not to expose them to temperatures over 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Plenty of shade and air flow should be provided.

Despite their long coats, Satin Angoras do not have high grooming requirements. Their fur does not readily mat or tangle. A weekly brushing is usually sufficient to keep the coat neat and shiny. More frequent brushing will be needed during annual molts when old hair is shed.

As Pets

The mellow personality and silky fur of the Satin Angora make it a delightful pet for rabbit lovers. They enjoy human interaction and are quite tolerant of handling and cuddling. The breed often participates in rabbit shows and makes an excellent choice for 4H projects. Satin Angoras can be litter trained and given plenty of play time and interaction.

Satin Angoras make engaging pets for older children and adults. Their relatively large size and fragile bones however make them less suitable for small children who might drop or mishandle them. Proper education on caring for rabbits is essential especially in households with young kids.

Housing a Satin Angora calls for a large, well-ventilated cage or hutch. At minimum, the enclosure should be 4 times the size of the rabbit. Wire bottom cages are not recommended as they can lead to sore hocks. The best option is a large hutch with a hiding box attached where the rabbit can retreat if frightened. The enclosure should contain litter boxes, chew toys, and a hay feeder.

Grooming and Health

The shiny satin coat requires regular grooming to prevent matting and to remove loose fur. A grooming session 2 to 3 times per week is ideal. Brushing removes dead hairs and redistributes skin oils to enhance the glossy finish. Trimming nails and checking ears for infection are also part of a good grooming routine.

Satin Angoras have average health and are not prone to any specific genetic diseases. With proper care, housing, grooming, and diet, they generally live 7 to 10 years. Common health issues to monitor include overgrown teeth, ear mites, intestinal parasites, and digestive issues if diet is not carefully regulated. A sprinkle of timothy hay should always be available along with measured portions of pellets and vegetables.

Breeding Satin Angoras

Breeders need to be committed to maintaining the characteristics of the breed. The objective is to produce rabbits with the correct combination of satin sheen, silky texture, and long locks of fur in the proper places. The ARBA breed standard should serve as the guide.

The nest box and litter should be prepared 4 to 5 days prior to the expected kindle date. The doe will pull fur to make a warm nest for her litter which averages 4 to 6 kits. Kits develop quickly and will be ready to leave the nest at 3 weeks old. By 8 to 12 weeks, they are ready for adoption.

Satin Angora kits need extra care when being weaned by the breeder or transitioning to a new home. Adding alfalfa hay or pellets gradually to their diet prevents digestive upset. Gentle handling and positive interactions help kits bond with their caretakers. With time, they become the sweet, mellow companions that Satin Angoras are known for.

Showing Satin Angoras

The Satin Angora’s beautiful sheen and dramatic coat make it a stand out breed on the show table. Judges evaluate the texture, density, length, and glossiness of the coat. Correct furnishings on the ears, head, tail, and feet are also important. Show rabbits must meet the ideal weight range for the breed standard.

In addition to conformation shows, Satin Angoras also compete well in breed identification contests. Their distinctive appearance makes them easy for contestants to recognize. Specialty shows featuring long haired breeds like the Satin Angora continue to gain popularity and attract exhibitors.

Finding Satin Angoras

Prospective owners can locate Satin Angora breeders through rabbit registries, breed clubs online, or local rabbit shows. The ARBA website has a directory of breeders searchable by state.

When contacting breeders, ask about breed backgrounds, temperament, husbandry practices, etc. Reputable breeders focus on health and proper socialization. Always visit the breeder’s facility in person before bringing a rabbit home.

If wishing to adopt rather than buy, Satin Angoras may be available through local rabbit rescues or shelters. Mixed breed rabbits with long fur are often labelled “Angora” even if not purebred.

Whether acquired as a pet or show rabbit, the Satin Angora is sure to impress with its gleaming and glamorous coat. This eye catching breed delights owners with its warmth and companionship. With proper care, Satin Angoras make fabulous furry friends for years to come.
