In this scenario it was not applied to the RF (niche) mohair because the producer is expected to personally sell this mohair to the hand spinners. Coats would be worn by all Cited by: 9. Mohair is used extensively in both knitted and woven fabric production. Finer fabrics are made of kid mohair, the fiber from the animal’s first clip, which is done in the first six months. These produce the finest and most beautiful batches, with smooth, shiny transparent white fibers between 27 and 30 microns.

He wrote widely of his activities, sold his goats across the state and nation, produced a book on the raising of Angora goats, and in other ways encouraged the industry.

a twelve-page introduction to Angora goat production “Angora Goat and Mohair Production” This book, by Dr. Maurice Shelton, research geneticist emeritus at AgriLife Research, San Angelo, Texas, is arguably the most complete reference available on Angora goats grazing native range.

These entrepreneurial efforts provided the Texas mohair industry with a much-needed promotional boost. Black's sales provided a market for the surplus stock of Angora raisers, and his book on the industry published in led to increased recognition and acceptance of mohair production as a business.

Mohair, the long, smooth fiber used in sweaters, hats, and other fluffy accessories, comes from angora goats (leading many to confuse it with angora wool, which comes from angora rabbits).Most of the world’s mohair originates in South Africa and the U.S.

(particularly Texas), where angora goats are bred primarily for their soft inner coats, which are generally shorn twice a year, beginning.

Texas produces about 20 percent of the total wool clip and more than 97 percent of the total mo-hair clip of the United States. These two products contribute about 50 million dollars annually to the agricultural income of Texas.

A producer with a good knowledge of wool and mohair encounters fewer problems in production and marketing. Progress 09/01/03 to 08/31/05 Outputs Two research objectives were: 1) Develop and evaluate near-infrared reflectance spectroscopy (NIRS) and automatic image analysis for rapid, objective evaluation of wool, mohair, cashmere, and other animal fibers.

2) Use objective measurements to improve fiber and/or meat production; quality; and income to producers through improved selection. At its production peak during the / harvest, Lesotho is said to have exported more than 3 million kilograms of wool and mohair at a gross turnover of nearly R million.

This was made possible by a flock of more than 2 million sheep and goats which are primarily used in the production of wool and : Sechaba Mokhethi. Kristal's father, James Stotts of Stotts Ranch, raises the finest mohair in the world.
