Unbeknown to anyone, however, the ewe was already pregnant, and gave birth to a ram en route to South Africa. Since then, the South African mohair industry has grown exponentially, and today, the Karoo region produces around half the world’s mohair – all thanks to a pregnant ewe and a Sultan’s mistake.
Lustrous, resilient and offering exceptional colour retention, mohair has become a symbol of luxury. This natural, renewable resource is lightweight and versatile, staying cool in summer and warm in winter. Because of its pliability, mohair is rated as one of the world’s most durable fibres, and products made from mohair have an innate elasticity which ensures that they hold their shape and do not crease.
Every product and brand we promote makes exclusive use of mohair and has been produced locally with the ethical treatment of animals in mind.
