It is interesting to see all the media coverage surrounding the Sheep Goat hybrid.
Our Cloth merchants have been doing it for years.
Holland & Sherry have selected the first clip from the mohair goat and blended it with 18.5 micron merino wool to produce a fabric that is amongst the most durable of all natural fibres.
It is resistant to soiling and creasing with the smooth scales of the mohair fibre stopping dirt from becoming trapped and the cloth has a remarkable recovery making it crease resistant.
It also provides great insulation with mohair working as an insulator whilst wool is a conductor.
Together, they produce the perfect fabric for both warmer and cooler climates.
The perfect cloth for a summer suit.
