What makes mohair so special
Mohair gives you the warmth without the weight, a natural insulator mohair is the most durable animal fibre with great elasticity that makes it resistant to sagging, stretching and wrinkling. Shrink resistant, the smooth fibre of mohair does not felt or mat together. Mohair is non-flammable meaning it won’t melt like synthetic materials and will only burn when exposed to direct flame. As if that is not enough mohair takes incredibly well to dye so it won’t fade.
How to clean it
Soak in tepid water with mild detergent recommended for wool, gently wash by hand to dissolve any dirt particles. Rinse in clean, cold water then rinse excess water and dry on a flat surface.
