Mohair is an animal fiber, shorn from the Angora Goat, and the word "mohair" comes from the Arabic word mukhayyar, literally meaning 'choice'. Mohair grows approximately 1" every month, and the goats are usually shorn every 6 months.
Mohair is a very versatile fiber, and has many properties not found in any other animal fiber. It is strong and durable, meaning it can be bent and twisted without damaging the fiber. Mohair does not conduct heat, and provides good insulation, even when it is wet. Unlike wool, mohair fibers are smooth, and are thus less irritating to the skin, even for people who are sensitive to wool. This smoothness also means it is easy to dye, and will resist fading. Mohair can be easily bended with many other fibers, allowing for the best properties of both fibers to be used. For instance a mohair/wool blend could have the body and bounce of wool, with the strength, durability and lustre of mohair. And mohair is non-flammable!
