South Africa produces approximately half the world’s mohair, making us the largest producer of mohair in the world!

Mohair Mill Shop is a proudly South African brand, and we source all of our Mohair products locally from trusted, ethical farmers.
All About our Mohair Products
Mohair’s high quality sheen and exceptional natural properties firmly establish it as one of the world’s most luxurious fibres. But it’s real value lies in the fact that it’s made up of sustainable natural fibres that are a renewable resource. The Mohair production process is a synergistic relationship between both the goats and humans, making it a sustainable, ethical farming practice.

What makes our socks so special
Our socks are ideal for hiking and adventure sport. The mohair is expertly woven into the sock to ensure that your feet stay dry throughout the day, as the moisture is carried along the vein of the mohair fibre and out through the pores. The smooth natural fibres also help to protect the foot from chafing and blisters. So if you’ve got an exciting adventure planned, then make sure you don’t leave home without a pair of our expertly designed socks.
How to Care for your Mohair Blanket
Our mohair products are durable and long lasting and can last a lifetime provided that they’re cared for properly. Follow these care instructions and your mohair blankets can be passed down from generation to generation.
Mohair does not retain dirt. Only when you have spilled something on it would we recommend washing mohair.
Dry clean only.
Store your blankets in a cool, dry place and on a flat surface. Do not hang your mohair blankets and do not store them in plastic.
When storing your blanket, it's best to place it in a bag made of natural fibre so that it can be protected from the elements while still being able to 'breathe'.
