dc.description.abstract [EN] The quality of Angora rabbit fibre is known to vary between the countries in which it is produced. A study was made to quantify various parameters of angora fibre quality, including fibre and medulla diameter, and the proportion of medullated fibres, in samples of angora wool obtained from Germany, France and China. The mean fibre diameter of the French angora fleeces (19.8 μm) is significantly higher than in German (12.8 μm) which is related to the higher proportion of coarser hairs in the pelage of French Angora rabbits. French Angora rabbits have a characteristic fleece structure. The down fibres (mean fibre diameter: 14.1 μm) are coarser than in German (12.4 μm) and Chinese (11.8 μm) wool and the degree of medullation in awns and bristles is lower compared to the German and Chinese samples. The characteristics of the German and Chinese Angora coats appear to be very similar. The highest proportion of medullated fibres is observed in the French angora wool (99.9 %). Values of 90.5 % and 96.8 % in the German and Chinese samples are obtained, respectively. The samples of Chinese angora fibre are found to have the highest medulla content (down: 39.2 %; awn: 52.2 %; bristle: 71.9 %). The French angora, in contras!, has a comparatively low medulla content (down: 36.7 %; awn: 29.7 %; bristle: 36.6 %). The medulla content of awns and bristles for German fibres are intermediate to the values obtained from the other samples; the medulla content in the down fibres is relatively low (down: 33.4 %; awn: 41.4 %; bristle: 52.5 %). es_ES
dc.description.abstract [FR] La qualité du poi/ angora varíe se/on le pays oü elle est produite. Cette étude tend a définir divers paramétres de qualité des fibres - diamétre de la fibre et diametre médullaíre, quantité de fibres médullées - dans des échantillons provenant d'Allemagne, de France et de Chine. Le diamétre mayen du poi/ d'une toison d'Angora fram;ais (19.8 μm) est significativement plus é/evé que celuí d'une toison d'Angora allemand (12.8 μm) ceci résultant de la part plus importante de poi/ grossier contenu dans la toison fram¡aise. La structure de la toison d'Angora franc;ais est tres part1culiére : le duvet ( diamétre mayen de la fibre : 14.1μm) est plus grossier que chez l'allemand (12.4μm) ou Je chinois (11.8 μm) et le degré de médullation du duvet et des jarres est plus faible comparé aux échantillons a/lemands ou chinois. Les caractéristiques des fourrures allemandes et chinoises sont trés similaires. La plus forte proportion de fibres médul/ées est observée chez /'Angora franc;ais (99.9 %) ; les échantillons allemands et chinois atteignent respectivement 90. 5% et 96. 8%. Le contenu médullaire Je plus é/evé a été trouvé dans l'échantillon d'Angora chinois (duvet: 39.2%, barbes: 52.2%, jarre: 71.9%). Au contraire, /'Angora franc;ais a un contenu médullaire relativement faible (duvet: 36. 7%, barbe : 29. 7%, jarre : 36. 6%). Les va/eurs du contenu médullaire des barbes et des jarres des toisons allemandes sont intermédiaires (duvet 33.4%, valeur relativement faible ; barbe 41.4% ;jarre: 52.5%)
