This is the stuff that clouds are made of, at least in a knitter’s imagination, fuzzy wisps of luxuriously-soft mohair fleece spun from baby goats. To be classified as superfine, mohair fibre must be no thicker than twenty-five microns and clipped from kid goats between the age of six and twelve months. Mohair has a natural lustre and accepts dye incredibly well, creating a vibrant spectrum of colour that surpasses even that of alpaca and merino wool. Exceptionally good as an insulator from the cold, mohair is very lightweight and does not have to be knit tightly in order to keep the wearer feeling warm. It is a non-pilling, non-matting type of fibre and as anyone who has knit with it can attest to, mohair will last for decades.
