Ethical and Sustainability Considerations:

This fabric is mohair, sheared from the Angora goat (no relation to the Angora rabbit). The hair grows very long, white, shiny and naturally wavy. When the goats are sheared (usually twice a year), the fibre is called mohair.

Once the fibre is imported to Germany from Texas, South Africa and Turkey, all weaving, dyeing, distressing, curling, waving and processing are carried in one factory to control the production process. This prevents any further unnecessary carbon emissions.

Suitable For:

Backpacks, Bags, Blankets & Throws, Curtains & Pelmets, Homewares, Jackets & Coats, Pillows, Scarves, Skirts, Soft Furnishings, Lightweight Clothing, Suits, Trousers & Shorts, Upholstery, Winter Clothing

 

To care for your product:

Suitable for washing machines below 30°C and tumble dryers, although due to the fibre's tendency to felt, we would recommend handwashing only. To protect fabrics for longer, hand wash in cool water. Suitable for ironing on low temperatures. Although ironing should not be needed for this product.

Turn the machine down to 30 degrees for a more environmentally friendly wash. In Europe alone, if every household turned its washing temperature down to 30°C, we could save 12 million tons of CO2 a year.

We also recommend line drying as this reduces energy usage and looks after your textiles for longer (as they don't get bashed around in your tumble dryer). Use a mild detergent, light botanical refresher or even steam the item you've made in your bathroom after a shower.

Natural-fibre fabrics have a natural tendency to shrink by 3-5%, so please wash this textile before you create any products that will require washing at a later date.

Wholesale And Restocking

Stepped pricing is available on 50 metres and over, so please inquire if you are looking for large amounts. We love working with smaller brands: purchase one metre and upwards directly from the website and email us for wholesale quantities for bulk production when you're ready. We welcome large and small orders from brands of all sizes.

Please note

Please note that refunds are not possible once fabrics have been cut unless in the unfortunate event that your material arrives damaged. Please order a swatch before purchasing your metre lengths. Please see our Refunds and Cancellation Policy page for full details.

Due to the nature of handwoven and hand-printed fabrics, there can be irregularities in the weave and print, along with variations in batch dye colour. We have quality controlled this fabric. However, there could be minor irregularities that we love and see as normal and charming. If you are unhappy with the material you purchase, please let us know, and we'll do our best to rectify it immediately: info@offsetwarehouse.com.
