Mohair is a natural fabric made from the hair of the Angora goat. It is regarded as a high end fabric and is in demand for its durability, high luster and soft feel.  Unlike wool, mohair is not an itchy fabric.  Mohair fabric has been used in symphony halls, hotel lobbies, movie theaters, office furniture and is a wonderful fabric for home use.

Velvet refers to a specific finish done to fabric.  Velvet can be made from many types of fabrics including cotton, polyester and silk.  Velvet is created on a specialized loom that allows for the weave threads to go through two pieces of fabric instead of one.  This end result is what is known as “pile”, which are the threads that are left sticking up.  This pile is soft to the touch and creates the plush look.  Velvet is typically considered to be a high end fabric.
