I would recommend you look a bit further than Wiki about Angoras.
The rabbits are domesticated and have been bred specifically for their coats and their temperament. They are much calmer than your average rabbit, in fact some people actually spin the fur directly off the rabbit.
For future reference, the only time an animal is killed for its coat is when the skin is also used, as in fur coats (mink, fox, chinchilla, etc.). Otherwise, animals are generally sheared (sheep, llamas, alpacas, etc.). Angoras can be plucked but for commercial operations shearing would be faster. If you're worried about the plucking hurting the rabbits, don't. The coat is "harvested" when it's ready and needs to be taken off. Just YouTube it if you don't believe me.
Oh, you also want to look up proper care of an angora garment. It's kind of delicate.
