Schulte® Mohair

Schulte® Mohair

Schulte Mohair is made from one of
nature`s finest sources for natural fiber,
the Angora goat.
This special fur is very long and naturally
wavy. When sheared (this usually occurs
twice a year) it is called mohair.

The term "mohair" is derived from the
Arabian word "Muhayar" which literally
means "the fabric of goat hair". Despite
the name similarity there is no relation
to the Angora rabbit.

Angora goats are a delicate animal and
are very sensitive to temperature change.
This requires a dependable mild climate.
Summers not so hot that the meadows dry
out and winters not too cold. In the entire
world there are only three regions that
consistently meet these ideal conditions: Texas, USA, South Africa and Turkey.

The fur of the Angora goat is naturally white, curly and shiny. Its fibers have a remarkable strength when made into a pile fabric. These characteristics together with the noble appearance, silky feel and sheen make mohair one of the finest fibers offered by nature.
Since 1901 the Reinhard Schulte factory has produced teddy bear material of 100% pure mohair! All weaving, dyeing, distressing, curling, waving and processing is done entirely in our factory to control the production process and assure our customers of the highest quality fabric.
The best thing that can happen to your bear is a furcoat of:
"The fabric teddies are made of"

One hundred percent nature.
