Linen Drawer: Weightless Warmth
There is nothing more comforting than being warm when it is cold outside. This is why we are thrilled to announce that Linen Drawer is now a stockist of mohair blankets. At last, supreme warmth with very little weight!
Linen Drawer has sourced mohair blankets from a South African producer who has their herd of angora goats in the Western Cape. They follow the Sustainable Mohair Industry production guidelines(https://www.angoras.co.za/page/sustainable-mohair-production-guidelines) which regulate the shearing practices and ensures no animals are harmed during shearing.
A local labour of love
Mohair is labour intensive to produce and weave, thereby providing jobs for the local community. The blankets are woven near Plettenberg Bay and are an essential factor in job creation in the rural Southern Cape.
Mohair is a 100% natural fibre, and is fully sustainable and biodegradable.
Amazingly warm and lightweight, the natural lustre of a mohair blanket is both luxurious and practical. The smooth fibres of mohair, with their characteristic sheen, make it naturally soil-repellent.
Mohair blankets can be washed successfully and are perfect for those long, cold winter months! Follow this link for a tried and tested method to washing your mohair blankets: linendrawer.co.za/how-wash-mohair-blankets
