  Angora Rabbits
Angora rabbits are a nice match for the gardener who also enjoys home-grown crafting because they are gentle pets who provide useful products for the garden and the gardener.
Angoras were known in England by 1708 and in France by 1723, where they became an important source of fiber for the fiber industry for the next 250 years.
Angoras were imported to the United States in the late 1920's and a small commercial industry developed that lasted for a while, but farmers were unable to support themselves on rabbits alone because it is such a labor intensive business.

 International Association of German Angora Rabbit Breeders
The answer lies in the history of the ups and downs of the angora industry in the U.S. In the 1930's a commercial angora industry was just forming in this country when World War II and the popularity of synthetic fibers put an end to it.
So the angora breeds in this country (predominately French and English) developed not under the selective pressure to produce large quantities of wool, but in the hands of hobbyists and show people.
Obviously there was a need for an organization that would serve and develop the commercial aspects of the U.S. angora industry, as well as preserve the standard of the German Angora rabbit.
