The story of mohair is ancient  
Mohair is one of the oldest natural textile fibers. The yarn is spun from the lustrous fleece of the Angora goat. These domestic goats, shorn twice a year, are bred in temperate climates like South Africa,  

Turkey, Australia, and the southwestern United States. Mohair is an extraordinary ?living? fiber with exceptional properties and characteristics. Its silky sheen is in a class of its own and cannot be imitated. The fiber is long, strong, resilient and durable.  

It readily absorbs the effects of body heat, moisture and pressure. It has a good affinity to dyestuffs, is naturally colourfast and flame retardant. Mohair pile is resistant to felting and the fiber retains its gloss even with intensive use.
