Is it mohair, merino, alpaca, angora or cashmere?..>>


Sheep come in many different breeds. Each breed produces a different type of wool, with different qualities. But not everything we call wool is considered wool because cashmere and mohair come from a goat, alpaca from a llama and angora from the angora rabbit. Actually, only the hair that comes from sheep is called wool and all other types are animal hair.
