I was just reading the show standard for netherland dwarves in my country and to my suprise there are 5 types of fur types they can have and allowed to show.

1. Short coating
2. Rex fur
3. Fuchs fur, long haired but easier to manage than angora and don’t need regular brushing except during molting.
4. Angora.
5. satin

I’ve seen rex, satin and fuchs on netherland dwarf but I have never heard or even seen angora fur type netherland dwarf. So I wonder if any of you have seen one, I’m interested to just see how they look like.

In the US, we have Jersey Woolies (or fuzzy netherlands, if they come out of normal netherland dwarf parents)
They (at least in the US) are bred to have more guard hairs than most angoras are so they tend to have a slightly coarse, low maintenance coat

Jersey wooly look a lot like the fuchs fur type of netherland dwarf. Their fur should be easier to manage than the angora fur type and don’t need regular brushing. Maybe the angora type fur look the same as the fuchs/jersey wooly.

The 'fuzzy netherlands' that come out of netherland parents with no jersey wooly lines tend to more cottony, higher maintenance coats because they havent been bred for the more abundant guard hairs. Maybe these look more like the angora fur type? 1660607752738.png

That might be true and can explain the difference between them. I was just curious because I’ve never heard of them before. Thanks a lot for your replys.

I got a fuzzy Netherland Dwarf in one of my last breedings and let's just say I will not be breeding that mix or sire again lol. The rabbit herself is really sweet, but her fur is a nightmare. I think she might be getting guard hair but I'm not 100% sure. She keeps getting mats so she's currently shaved. But this is her is in full coat

She’s really cute but I can understand the struggle with long hair bunnies ☺️
