Welcome to Mohair South Africa
MOHAIR THE MOST LUXURIOUS PRODUCT OF SOUTH AFRICA
THE MOHAIR STORY
The story of how Angora goats arrived on our shores and grew in numbers is truly amazing.
In 1838 the Sultan of Turkey sent twelve neutered rams and one female to Port Elizabeth, halfway across the world.
The rams were rendered infertile, as the Sultan wanted to protect his country’s powerful mohair empire.
What he didn’t realise, though, was that the ewe on board was pregnant and gave birth to a kid ram en route to Africa, which was the start of the industry in South Africa.
Today’s Karoo region produces the most mohair in the world – all thanks to the Sultan’s mistake and a pregnant ewe.
