So what is mohair?
Mohair is a fiber that comes from angora goats. It has a silk like quality and often a high sheen and luster. Some even call it the Diamond Fiber.
Even though mohair is an animal fiber it will not felt like other wool, but it does take to dye very well. This durable luxury fiber will produce a fantastic and flexible piece but many have complains about working will with mohair because they fuzz of the fiber can stick making the flow of the project less than desirable.
Don’t be discouraged!
One quick and easy solution to taming the fuzz is to place the yarn in the freezer before working with it. That’s it!
Your mohair fiber will be able to glide easily from the skein and work through your fingers like butter.
