The angora goat is an ancient breed, with records of the use of goat hair for clothing dating back as early as the 14th Century BC. In the early 13th Century AD there is a record of goats that were trekked thousands of miles to Ankara by Suleiman Shah, when fleeing Ghengis Khan. Angora goats are farmed commercially for their mohair fleece. Mohair is a soft, lustrous and hard-wearing fibre with excellent dyeing properties that can be spun into yarn for use in garments and luxury textiles. It should not be confused with angora wool, which is produced from the coat of rabbits. Check out which Agricultural Shows have classes for Angora Goats. If there is a show in your location that is not listed and they would consider angora goat exhibits please send us the details.
