Naturally colored mohair is American mohair. It is not imported and it is not grown on large, commercial ranches. Naturally colored mohair is raised on small, family farms across America. Our mohair is raised right here at Red Falcon Ranch in north Idaho. Dark brown is our specialty. We have been selectively breeding for this color for a number of years. Not only is naturally colored mohair rare, the dark brown is even more rare!! Naturally colored mohair is eco-friendly and sustainable. And, you can be certain that our mohair comes from goats that have been well loved and cared for.
Mohair comes from the angora goat, not to be confused with angora wool which comes from angora rabbits. Mohair is in a class by itself. It is the fiber of royalty and has been highly coveted for millennia.
Mohair has unique natural properties. It is a smooth fiber and does not have the scales found on wool. Mohair is stronger than steel of the same diameter plus it has the ability to stretch up to 30%. This strength makes for durable and long lasting products. Mohair keeps you warm in winter and cool in summer. Mohair resists wrinkles and odors. It is the perfect sustainable natural fiber.
