The word «mohair» is from Turkish language and means «best goat hair». Mohair is made from the wool of goats that originally lived in Angora, a Turkish province. Their wool was so highly valued that the Turkish Sultan had to ban the export of not only the wool, but also the goats themselves. Today mohair is a highly prized, luxurious natural fiber. It resembles silk and also is widely used for sewing coats, business suits and tuxedos.
