Long, lustrous, silky white hair of the angora goat is stronger and more resilient than wool. It dyes more easily than any other specialty hair fiber and often comes in brilliant colors. It is blended with wool to add sheen and fluffiness to the wool or used alone to make soft, fuzzy sweaters, lofty novelty coatings and smooth worsted suitings with a somewhat wiry hand.
