What’s so special about mohair?
Mohair is a sumptuously-soft, silk-like yarn that’s sheared from the Angora goat and has many benefits.
Keeps you warm in winter & cool in summer
Mohair has natural climate control. Angora goats, with their thick white fleeces, originated in the Himalayas, surviving massive extremes of temperature. This unique insulating ability makes mohair ideal for socks, keeping feet cool in hot weather yet incredibly warm when it turns cold.
Luxurious and lightweight
Mohair is exceptionally lightweight and feels soft and luxurious without the ‘itch’ factor of wool.
Bacteria bounces off!
Smooth fibres mean dirt and grime find it harder to adhere – they literally throw off bacteria and moisture!
Soft and gentle
Mohair is ideal for people who are sensitive to wool as it doesn’t irritate the skin.

Mohair is strong and durable. It can be twisted and bent without damage to the fibre. That’s why it’s known as the Diamond Fibre. It’s also superbly colourfast and naturally flame retardant.
Mohair is very elastic; it can be stretched up to 30%, and will spring back to shape so no wrinkling, stretching, or sagging even after machine washing.
Mohair is sustainable as it’s a renewable resource. Its sustainability is increasingly vital for the economies of developing nations, providing sustenance to small farmers and low wage workers in countries where Mohair is produced.
