Fair mohair from South Africa.
Mohair is a natural product, harvested from the carefully shorn wool of Angora goats. Already in the 16th century, people used mohair as a luxury fabric.
This yarn is produced in South Africa, by independent local entrepreneurs. Without aid or influence from NGO’s, they are able to produce a high quality product and supply dignified employment for the locals.
This mohair is an honest product of which they are justly proud.
Mohair has a relatively thin thread, with lots and lots of fluff attached to it. This fluffy effect will show best when it’s knit or crocheted on thick needles. This will result in airy, holey knitwear which is nicely supple, fluffy and oh so soft to the touch.
The special thing about mohair is that it will get more beautiful over time. By wearing it and moving the fabric about, the fluffiness is stimulated. The garment will become fluffier and suppler the more you use it. Even when it’s been crumpled up at the bottom of your closet for months, it will regain its beauty. Just shake it out a bit, air it, and your mohair marvel is as good as new.
