Mohair

What is mohair?

Mohair is a natural fiber, more specifically an animal fiber. Mohair consists of completely smooth and thin fibers from the angora goat and is a fine and natural material.

In addition, the quality is strong and glossy. the quality depends on the size of the angora goat, the older the goats, the coarser the fibers on the yarn. Although mohair is a fairly hard fiber, spun it into an airy yarn that results in soft, airy and light sweaters. The goats are sheared twice a year, as often in the spring and fall.

Mohair is often mixed with other fibers / qualities, as it helps to make the yarn more durable and herring strong. In our case, our mohair consists of 34% mohair, 34% wool, 27% polyamide and 5% elastane.
