Schulte Mohair is made from one of nature`s finest sources for natural fiber, the Angora goat. This special fur is very long and naturally wavy. When sheared (this usually occurs twice a year) it is called mohair. The term “mohair” is derived from the Arabian word “Muhayar” which literally means “the fabric of goat hair”. Despite the name similarity there is no relation to the Angora rabbit. The fur of the Angora goat is naturally white, curly and shiny. Its fibres have a remarkable strength when made into a pile fabric. These characteristics together with the noble appearance, silky feel and sheen make mohair one of the finest fibres offered by nature. Special surface effects make this fabrics almost unique. Many specialised finishing’s are possible: swirled, distressed, antique, curly or plain, densely woven or sparse.
