Can anyone confirm the existence of this "Moe Goat"? All the sources I can find claim it's the Angora.
Is mohair really a popular material to make teddy bears? None of mine are made out of mohair, and I can't see mohair as the best material for a teddy bear. Loggie 22:34, 16 December 2005 (UTC)

Can anyone tell me how to stop my Mohair jumber from molting.It makes my shirts look like teddy bears everytime I wear it.
shearing injuries to sheep
http://www.nzqa.govt.nz/nqfdocs/units/doc/20109.doc - this page from NZ government allows for skin cuts while shearing sheep. Other references support this, so I removed comparison to sheep not being harmed. Bob98133 17:37, 19 June 2007 (UTC)
Mohair in Teddy Bears
What's in a name?
out of date subsidy talk
The subsidy discussion says "as of 2002". It's now 2010. Does anybody know the current status of mohair subsidy? I know that this is more difficult given the fact that the US doesn't actually have a budget but there should be some way of figuring it out. TMLutas (talk) 21:30, 21 October 2010 (UTC)
One of the oldest fibers?
This line from the article: "It is one of the oldest textile fibers in use." Seems unsupportable to me. If there's a citation, it should be in there, but I don't see how anyone could work out relative dates for the beginnings of fiber production from things like flax, wool, mohair, and all the other early domesticates--not to mention all the fibers derived from non-domesticated sources (like tree bark). Perhaps it is one of the oldest in widespread industrial use? TCSaint (talk) 16:12, 7 June 2012 (UTC)
