Goat wool is mostly made from goat hair mixed with Virgin Wool. It is a very scratchy and extremely durable wool. The wool owes her bristly feeling to the thick, unruly goat hair. The rough surface contrasts with the luster of the individual hair, which shapes the appearance of the wool.
Goat hair is not only used for clothing. Also home accessories and floor mats are made of it.

Little excursion into mythology:
Goat hair plays a role in the Old Testament as sackcloth. From the cloth, garments were made as traditional mourning clothes and penitential robes. It was worn by kings in times of crisis or after they received sinister messages.
