Mohair is the type of fibre grown by Angora Goats

Currently the international mohair market is vastly undersupplied.

At its peak in 1989, worldwide mohair production reached 24 million kg per annum. Today, production of mohair sits at just under 3 million kg.

This international supply shortage means there is high demand for the fibre, creating a huge opportunity for anyone wishing to enter the industry.
