The Miracle Fibre

What is Mohair?

Mohair comes from the fleece of angora goats. Angora goats originate from Tibet and were brought to Turkey, where they got their name from, in the 16th century. Today, South Africa is the largest mohair producer in the world with around 50 % of global production.


Angora goats are shorn every 6 months. If not shorn regularly they are susceptible to parasites and illnesses.

Long hair may also limit their sight and movement which may prevent the goat from eating and drinking and inhibit baby goats from suckling.

Angora goats are handled with patience when shearing allowing for their natural behavior. Curious and clever.

Fleece is callard mohair, not angora as Angora wool comes from Angora rabbits.
