Cultivated from the long, silky hair of Angora goats, mohair is similar to wool but has a fine texture with a smoother surface and a natural luster. Commonly found in blended yarns, mohair provides durability, elasticity, and a fuzzy texture that adds a soft halo to any project. It is suitable for delicate lacework patterns or for giving thicker-weight projects a luxurious tactile quality that is light yet cozy.
