Angoras and mohair
Prince Albert is proud home to the oldest Angora stud in South Africa. Our producers have consistently produced some of the world’s highest quality clip, obtaining the highest prices for their mohair for the last 30 years.
The rapidly expanding mohair industry provides much local employment – shearers and classers from Prince Albert are sought after throughout the Karoo. Local Angora goat farmers have hosted visitors from all over the world and are involved in development and offer training and shearing courses.
