Description

The Angora goat is a breed of domestic goat that is named for Ankara, Turkey. Angora goats produce the lustrous fibre known as mohair. A single goat produces between four and five kilograms of hair per year. Angoras are shorn twice a year. Angora goats are more susceptible to external parasites than similar animals, as their coats are denser.
