How to Care for Mohair

12 Apr 2024


Mohair, known for its luxurious texture and warmth, has been a staple in fashion for centuries. But caring for this premium fabric requires a delicate touch.

What is Mohair Fabric?

Mohair fabric is made from the hair of angora goats, known for its softness, durability, and lustrous sheen. These fibers are known for their ability to absorb and retain dyes exceptionally well, resulting in vibrant and long-lasting colors. Mohair is also coveted for its insulating properties, making it an ideal choice for cozy winter .

How to Care for Mohair

Caring for mohair requires a gentle touch to preserve its softness. 

  • Hand Washing: Always hand wash mohair garments in lukewarm water with a mild detergent. Avoid harsh chemicals or excessive agitation, as they can damage the delicate fibers.

  • Drying: After washing, gently squeeze out excess water without wringing or twisting the fabric. Lay the flat on a towel to air dry away from direct heat or sunlight.

Storage: To prevent mohair from stretching or losing its shape, store it folded in a breathable garment bag or drawer. Avoid hanging mohair garments, as they may lose their shape over time.
