Kid Mohair

Mohair is a soft comfortable wool made from the long curly hair of the angora goat. It has a beautiful shine, is very resilient and therefore it is used for the most luxurious fabrics. The finest mohair, also called kid mohair, comes from the first shearing of a young Angora goat.

Another great benefit of mohair is its natural self-cleaning property. Because of this, most dirt can be removed simply by shaking out the item of clothing. For a deeper clean, you can ventilate your mohair item in the open air or steam it in your bathroom. This wool should be hand washed inside-out, using a mild detergent. Press out the water from the wool without wringing, lay flat to airdry.

  • Wash mohair by hand, maximum of 30 degrees Celsius
  • Wash the garment inside out
  • Use a special wool detergent
  • Never use a tumble dryer
  • Dry the garment flat
  • Ironing is allowed at a low temperature, maximum of 110 degrees Celsius
