Mohair is a luxurious fibre obtained from the hair of the Angora goat and its main characteristics are its softness and shine. Unlike sheep's wool, which is curly , mohair hair is smoother and finer, ad is also more insulating and with more shine. The hair from the youngest goats is the most fine and is used for “kid mohair”. The mohair fibre can be mixed with silk or with different types of wool.
