What is Mohair?

Mohair is the luxurious fiber produced by angora goats. In silky ringlets, mohair is sheared twice a year in the spring and fall. Stronger than similarly sized steel with moisture wicking and temperature regulating properties, mohair is a super fiber.

Is mohair, wool?

No, Angora goats produce mohair. Sheep produce wool.

Do you sell yarn?

We do not at this time, but should we ever in the future, we will sell it through my daughter’s online shop: Pine Rose & Co. If you go to her website and sign up for the newsletter, you can stay updated on all things yarn!

How are your socks made?

Great question! We have a whole blog post dedicated to our supply chain and process behind each pair of Caprine socks. Read it here.

What does "Caprine" mean?

Caprine (kuh-preen) is the scientific name for goats.

Since we raise angora goats for mohair, this was the perfect brand name! Our horn logo is also symbolic of our goats. Did you know angoras have horns?

Recommended Care

Machine wash in cold water and line dry or tumble dry with no heat. Taking good care of your socks will increase their lifespan.
