Artist Bio

The history of mohair stretches back thousands of years to the origins of the Angora goat in the Tibetan Himalayas. Today, mohair – the fleece of the Angora – is known worldwide as `the noble fiber’ and both its beauty and longevity can be attributed to its unrivaled luster, warm resilience and ability to hold brilliant colors.

South African mohair has two centuries of refinement to its credit and is acknowledged to be of the finest quality available internationally. The local mohair industry’s dedication to the pursuit of perfection has seen the refinement of angora fleece through consistently high breeding standards and meticulous genetic selection.

Angora goats thrive in the Karoo region of South Africa, where the combination of hot, dry summers, cold winters and semi-desert vegetation give mohair the added beauty of being a renewable and sustainable natural resource.

Hinterveld takes this unique textile and transforms it by hand into luxurious throws for your home in stunning colors and blends.
