Mohair wool

The shiny mohair fibre comes from the angora goat - not to be confused with the angora fibre provided by the angora rabbit. What both fibres have in common: They stand for premium quality in the world of yarns.

History: The word "mohair" comes from the Arabic language world and means "first-class wool". The Angora goat also originally comes from this region: these noble goats were domesticated and bred in the Ottoman province of Angora (today the Turkish city of Ankara). In the meantime, however, this small animal breed is also native to the USA, Australia and South Africa, where it also supplies its noble wool. Angora goats can be sheared twice a year, producing up to 4 kg of wool. The fibres are up to 30 cm long. The best wool is produced by animals that are between half a year and four years old. Kid mohair, the best quality mohair, measures less than 30 microns (By comparison, the average human hair measures 60 microns).

Uses: Mohair is mainly used for knitted products such as jumpers, pollunders or cardigans.

Properties: Mohair wool is water repellent and absorbs moisture of up to 30 percent of its own weight. The wool is warming in winter and cooling in summer. It also has antibacterial properties that prevent fungal growth. It is therefore ideal as an additive for socks.

Care: Mohair is very soft and fluffy and therefore very sensitive. Therefore, always use a liquid wool detergent for washing, as this can distribute itself evenly into the fibres and thus no detergent residues can stick. When washing by hand, soak the mohair garment in a lukewarm solution for half an hour. Then roll it back and forth in the lye - without squeezing it hard. Finally, wash out the detergent thoroughly. Now use a special fabric softener for long fibres to soften the mohair piece in a new solution. Then rinse the good piece again thoroughly with clear water and dry it.
There are also a few things to keep in mind when drying: First, let the water drip off well, pressing the garment very carefully. Then dry lying on a towel, not hanging. Turn over often. When the mohair piece is dry, shake it up briefly.
