The Angora goat is an ancient breed, dating back to as early as the 14th century. These thick-haired goats originate in Turkey and are named after the country’s capital, Ankara, historically known as Angora. To the untrained eye, the Angora goat could be mistaken for a sheep due to their thick, curly coat. They are the only breed of goat to produce a sought-after fiber known as mohair. Apart from being beautiful to look at, mohair is a popular material in the production of garments such as sweaters. The Angora goat has a pleasant personality and is known for being a very curious creature, but they are not the hardiest of breeds.
