Mohair ... The Noble Fibre

Posted in Blankets and throws

Now some are thinking. . .

Does Mohair scratch?
Some yarns are just “pokier” than others, making itchy items, however, when the mohair is nicely contained within the blend it is quite soft.

Are Mohair Products made in South Africa?
The Hinterveld Range of products are 100% South African made and available in various exciting colours. These blankets and Throws are ideal to keep you warm in the cold months ahead, and are also very decorative.

Where does the Mohair originate from?
The main material that is being used is the fleece from the Angora goat, which is farmed and found on the plains of the Karoo.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


From the Catwalks of the world to the wardrobes and homes of the rich and famous, runs a thread woven from the noble South African fibre.

The fleece of the Angora goat, dates back thousands of years to the Tibetan Himalayas, from where the goats originated.
Mohair today is one of the world’s most saught after natural fibres, with two centuries of refinement by the South African textile industry behind it.

The Founding of the Mohair industry in South Africa was a stroke of good luck after the Sultan of Turkey sent twelve infertile ( Unable to reproduce ) Angora rams and one ewe to South Africa in 1838.
Unknown to the Sultan, the ewe was pregnant and gave birth to a ram kid ( Baby Angora ), therefor establishing the Angora breeding life in South Africa.

These beautiful and very gentle animals ultimately found their way to the Karoo region of South Africa’s Eastern Cape, where great flocks of goats are now farmed.

Mohair is known worldwide as ‘The Noble Fibre” or “The Diamond Fibre”. It’s exclusive qualities - lustre, resilience and colour reflection - have been it’s success, and the South African textile industry has grown into the global leader, producing the world’s best Mohair.
