What is Mohair??
The Angora goat is a breed of domesticated goat that produces the lustrous fiber known as mohair. Early settlers in Rocksprings learned that the land in Edwards County was not suitable for farming, but it did supply ample food for sheep and Angora goats. Ranching began to dominate Edwards County as the demand for wool & mohair increased in the early twentieth century.
Angora goat ranchers from all over the Hill Country bring in bags of mohair to be graded by our specially trained staff. Once graded it is re-bagged and sent to Houston Texas where it will eventually ship to South Africa to be cleaned and processed. Once processed it is spun into thread and then used to make clothes, blankets, purses, etc.
