Amazing mohair!

Angora goats originally came from Turkey where the mohair fibre was the prized reserve of the sultans.

Nowadays, the world’s biggest producers are South Africa and Texas with smaller amounts being produced in Australia, Lesotho, Argentina and Turkey. There are only about 2000 angora goats in UK producing about 7 tons of mohair per year. (World production is about 5,000 tonnes.) Mohair is known as the “Diamond Fibre” for its lustre, strength and durability.

Unlike sheep’s wool, mohair fibres are smooth and don’t trap bacteria which cause smells.

Any moisture is quickly wicked away. This is true... we aren't just saying it. It really does mean that you can wear them for a considerably long time without washing them!

And, as if all that weren't enough: mohair fibres are 3 times more resistant to rubbing than wool fibres. So your socks will last longer!

Corrymoor: British grown and made!

Corrymoor Angora goats – an award winning flock in Devon – are shorn twice a year and the mohair fleeces are carefully graded to ensure that only the best quality is used for Corrymoor Mohair Socks. Mohair from the Corrymoor flock is  supplemented with mohair from other British breeders and fine mohair from South Africa.

The mohair is specially selected for its quality and softness, as well as for its strength.The mohair is commercially washed and combed into “tops”, worsted spun (for smoothness and added strength) into yarn. The socks themselves are then expertly knitted on traditional machinery in Leicestershire and dyed “in the sock” to produce the distinctive Corrymoor colour range.

Just brilliant socks

If you like socks that are supportive, warm, breathable, non-smelly, tough and super comfy... then these are the way to go. Mohair (from goats) has a completely different feel from sheep's wool and performs much better as a sock material. Corrymoor goats are raised in Devon. All good. All British!
