A word about Mohair.
Mohair (aka “diamond fibre”) is animal hair, obtained from Angora goats.
-It is lustrous, strong, resilient and durable.
-It does not shrink, as wool does, or melt like synthetics.
-It wicks moisture, isn’t easily crushed or matted.
-It has a high affinity for dyes and is known for its vivid colors!
Mohair, similarly to wool, is composed mostly of a protein substance, keratin, although the outer layer has about half the number of scales found even on fine wool, and they are not fully developed. Thus the texture is not “itchy” but silk like.
It is considered a luxury fibre, like cashmere, silk and angora (ironically angora is fur from rabbits, not angora goats!).
Traditionally, Mohair was the material of choice for horse cinches. When synthetics became available, cinches began being made out of the inferior products, but they sore horses quite easily and do not last nearly as well.
Today, with the increased demand for high quality horse gear, horseman and saddle makers have rediscovered the benefits of mohair. For cinches, breast-collars, mecates & reins!
