Angora goat
Content: Printed on border: "The finer fleeces are produced by kids, wethers, and the younger does. The fleece of all Angoras grows coarse after the goat are six years old, beginning even earlier than this with bucks. The fine grades of mohair are used principally in the manufacture of plushes and the coarser grades in dress goods, coat linings, etc. Feeding has much to do with the length and strength of mohair as well as with the weight of the fleece. The colder climates also increase the fineness and add to the weight." Includes additional text.
