Although not a mohair product, probably the stand that got the most attention was the one with Angora goat meat products. An Angora goat can produce quality mohair until they are about 7 or 8 years old. Elna van den Bergh (firstname.lastname@example.org) and her partners are from the town of Jansenville and they have started to produce angora meat for the market. Now don’t go and imagine somebody braaiing angora steak and chops. The products include burger patties, boerewors (sausage), cheese grillers, salami, brawn, droë wors (dried sausage) and the most divine liver paté.
Yesterday I kicked off my series of posts related to the International Mohair Summit with some background information. For today’s post I want to show off some of the mohair products that was on show at the trade show that was held at the summit.
One of the most popular mohair products are mohair blankets. There were several stalls with blankets, but some of the most exquisite ones must have been those on the stand of Jan Paul Barnard (Mohair Weavers).
People always go mad about Persian carpets, but if you ask me, I would much rather prefer a mohair carpet from Elsa Barnard Mohair Carpets. The designs are absolutely awesome, the colours great and then there is the fact of “Local is lekker”.
I was very impressed with the mohair collection of dresses by Natalie Creed. Her mohair collection is called Bon Foret and the designs are done mostly in earthy colours.
