What is Mohair fabric?
Mohair fabric is fabric made from the hair of the Angora goat. Angora goats are shorn twice a year, and their hair is cleaned and used to create a variety of mohair fabrics. The largest exporter of Mohair fabric is South Africa with the United States being the world’s second largest producer of Mohair.  Texas is home to many Angora goat farms and leads the county in Mohair production.  Mohair fabric is one the oldest textile fabrics that is still in use today.  It is a wonderful fabric for both its look and feel as well as its durability and usefulness.

Common Mohair Uses
Mohair fabric can be used for multiple purposes. 

  • Mohair fabric works very well as a drapery fabric.  Mohair acts as an excellent insulator to keep cold air out in the winter and as a barrier against hot temperatures in the summer months.
  • Mohair fabric is also very popular as an upholstery fabric.  It is soft to the touch, with a velvet like feel.  It has a high luster and sheen and does not felt like wool from a sheep will.  It is an extremely durable fabric and is flame resistant.
  • Finer mohair fabrics are also used for clothing.  The clothing can keep you warm in the winter, but also relatively cool in the summer due to its moisture wicking qualities.
