A fluffy, luxurious-looking sweater will soon become one of the core elements of our autumn style. Not only is it incredibly comfortable to wear, but the mohair sweater also attracts eyes with its fluffy appearance, which invites you to touch it.
Mohair, i.e., wool obtained from the hair of Angora goats, is a very old material. You can already find mentions of him in the Bible. While it was previously considered a very luxurious commodity, the price of which was much higher than the price of ordinary sheep’s wool, today it belongs to the available materials that are worth using It has incredible softness, and at first glance, you can distinguish it from ordinary woolen pieces. A fluffy mohair sweater will be one of the distinctive fashion elements that will soften our austere, chiseled, elegant, and leisurely models.
Mohair Sweater: Timeless yet relevant
A real wave of popularity for luxuriously soft and highly warm mohair sweaters was started some time ago by the Marni brand, whose offer included both women’s and men’s models, and both types are still very popular. But following the trail of the famous fashion house and its striped gem in neutral colors will not be so difficult.

The charming mohair is subject to one creator after another, so you can choose from domestic individuals, such as the young brand Anamé, as well as from chains, where you will come across a mohair sweater with the arrival of the first autumn collection. They are offered by brands such as COS or Arket.
Simple-cut or oversize elements
The most popular type this year will be a classic sweater with a round neck and a button-up variant of a simple short cardigan, but you can find an innovative variation in models with fluffy wide sleeves with knits and oversized sweaters with an oversized silhouette that you can tuck into jeans or let them float freely over satin briefs clothes.
Pastel colors suit Mohair as well as austere classics. After all, even the famous striped sweater with pile from the Marni brand is unisex, and you can still get it today in both women’s and men’s versions. This year, pastel shades of vanilla, lilac, or innocent blue are complemented by more expressive tones, such as sharp green, red, or magenta.
Proper care is the basis of longevity
And how do you properly care for your mohair beauty? This is a type of wool that is much less biting and felting. However, it can also lose some of its volume during washing. It is therefore always recommended to gently moisten mohair clothing and then gently rub it in your hands with the help of washing gel (the powder does not dissolve so well and could stick between the fibers). Instead of washing gel, it is also possible to use a gentle shampoo for the hair, which first lathers in the spa for washing, and only then will you buy your mohair gem in it.
Then squeeze the excess water out of the sweater; wringing by twisting is undesirable as it threatens the structure of the individual fibers. When drying, use a horizontal, smoothed surface on which to flatten the sweater neatly, without creases or breaks; the shape it “remembers” during drying will also remain that way. When it is half dry, ensure air supply to the lower parts as well. Always avoid ironing in the case of mohair garments.
