The longhair goats


The south African Angora goat is another animal that we consider a valued supplier. Kid mohair in particular is valued for its especially fine, lustrous nature. Mohair is especially light, soft, and fluffy.

It is durable and more resistant to pilling than other wool types. In addition, Mohair is antistatic and very warm.

Unlike sheep wool, Mohair is not itchy and as with cashmere it is soft and supple to the touch. Mohair is water-repellent, yet it can also absorb up to 30% of its own weight in fluid.

In winter the wool has a warming effect and in summer a cooling one. Mohair is crease resistant and very easy to use.
