Mohair is a strong, elastic fibre, has considerable luster (some call it the “diamond fiber.”) and takes dye very well. It is very similar to wool in chemical composition but it differs from wool in that it has a much smoother surface and a very thin and smooth scale. Other properties of mohair:
No other fibre will keep your feet as warm in the cold and as comfortable in the heat as mohair will. This is because of the superior thermoregulation properties of mohair.
No other fibre will keep you feet as dry and as fresh as mohair will. Natural wickability and breathability of mohair outperforms even merino wool.
The smooth fibre of mohair in combination with dry feet make for the most blister resistant socks when compared to other socks. No chafing.
Mohair is considered the strongest of all animal fibers (stronger than similarly-sized steel) making our socks long lasting.
The elasticity of mohair, which can stretch by up to 30 percent and return, means that we cover from size 36 – 47 in only 2 sock sizes.
The antimicrobial and antifungal properties of mohair additionally contributes to odor free socks. You can wear our mohair socks for up to 7 days without washing.
At Alles Mooi, we use mohair to design the most comfortable socks you have ever worn. It is true we include the same percentage content of both mohair and merino wool in our socks but it’s the mohair that provides the noticeable difference.
