Introduced into the UK mid 1980’s
First appeared in litters of Dwarf Lops when breeders noticed a rabbit with a luxuriously soft coat that resembled the fur of the Cashmere goat. Enthusiasts persevered to improve the new variety and the Cashmere was recognised by the BRC in the mid 1980s. Requires expert housing and daily grooming and handling so seek advice from breeders before considering taking up this breed.
