Today the Mohair- or Angora goat is mainly bred in South Africa (60%) and the USA. These animals get shorn twice per year and produce 3-5KG yearly.

Mohair goats have a well insulating and light wool which is shiny and more tear-resistant than Merino wool, for example. Depending on the delicateness and the age of the goat the wool is mainly used for outerwear and accessories (scarfs / hats) and for textiles / carpets (wool of older goats).
