Mohair is the sheared fiber offered by Angora goats and is one of the oldest textiles for fabric making in use throughout the world. The fiber is soft and silky, an excellent insulator in winter as well as relatively cool during warmer temperatures. Mohair is generally blended with other wool fibers to create a high quality yarn or used for craft projects.
This past week I hand-washed then sun-dried Savannah's mohair locks.
The color palette for her fiber includes creamy white, beige and tan, and light red (generally found on fiber tips). Her locks maintain a soft crimp.
Our mohair fibers are available for purchase through our Etsy shop.
This is our story, in real time and in photos. It is neither unique nor unusual nor extraordinary. But it is our story.
