Mohair Care

Why Mohair?

Mohair is a premium natural hair-fiber that is derived from the Angora Goat. Due to its many benefits, it is highly desired in the equine industry for cinches, breast collars, etc.

Mohair Care

Keep your Mohair Tack looking GREAT:

  • DO NOT excessively wash your Mohair Tack. This will greatly accelerate any fading and/ or felting. Felting will happen over time with use but does not impair any functionality.
  • Horse hair will collect on the back side and this is totally normal. Do not remove it. The hair just adds to the comfort of your horse.
  • Keep an eye on your horse while it’s tied, rubbing can cause excess felting.
  • Mohair does not hold up well in extreme brushy or overgrown terrain, nor extremely damp climates.
  • Do not use a brush on the front side of your Mohair Tack, this will only snag the cords.
  • Try to avoid spraying Mohair Tack with any fly spray. Chemicals in fly spray can accelerate color fading.
  • Mohair Tack should be stored in a dry, inside location that is sealed and free of rodents and/or insects.

Mohair Cleaning

Mohair does a wonderful job of keeping itself clean and hardly needs washed!

Maintenance Clean: Once dry - use your fingers to gently dust off any dirt or mud. You can use a soft brush if needed on the BACK SIDE of your tack (side against the horse).

Deep Clean: This should only be done occasionally (1- 2 times a year max) to prevent any excess felting and/ or fading. Remove any leather pieces and place mohair into a bucket of cold water. Add a dime sized amount of non-detergent, natural soap (I recommend a gentle baby shampoo ). Gently swirl around and agitate using your hands. Remove from bucket, gently rinse with cold water, and lay flat to dry onto a clean surface (out of direct sunlight).
