Angora goats produce a beautiful, luxurious, incredibly durable, fiber called mohair, which rates among the warmest natural fibers known. Just like human babies, the baby angora goat has much finer hair than the adult. The finer the hair, the softer the handle. The kid hair is in great demand and commands high prices - it cost nearly 20 times more per pound than adult hair. It drapes well and resists wrinkling or shrinking. It is stronger and warmer than wool, keeping heat in during cold weather and as a barrier against hot summer temperatures. Mohair is not itchy because it does not have scales like wool. It accepts dye with an exuberance that is unparalleled. Natural colored mohair has variations of shades that are exceptionally beautiful. Mohair has several unique properties that are not found in any other animal fiber including insulation, strength, weather resistance and durability. Each shawl weighs approximately 3 oz.
They measure 72 inches long and 36 inches wide.
