The most difficult goats riddlesClothes quiz
Which animal's hair is a source of mohair?
Angora goats have been in Central Asia since the Paleolithic. They produce the luxury fibre known as mohair. It is lustrous and shiny, warm in winter as it has excellent insulating properties, while remaining cool in summer due to its moisture wicking properties. Today, South Africa is the world's largest mohair producer, producing around 50% of the total world production.
Which animal's hair is used to make cashmere?
Common usage defines the fibre as a wool, but in fact it is a hair, and this is what gives it its unique characteristics as compared to sheep's wool (a hair has a hollow core, while wool does not). Cashmere has been manufactured in Nepal and Kashmir for thousands of years.
