Angora Wool Coat – Soft, Silky and Warm

Have you ever wondered what angora wool in a women’s coat is?

Long Angora wool coat

When it comes to specialty wools, there are a few that everyone seems to know, such as cashmere and alpaca. They seem to be the most popular with the general public and for a long time, they been associated with luxury fashion. But there is another type of “specialty” wool I would like to shed light on, the Angora Wool.

I am very fortunate because I get to work in both the manufacture and the retail floor of our company. This allows me to observe certain trends and particularities there are in the luxury fashion industry. As a result, I have noticed that when it comes to wool coats, none sells more than coats made out of Angora wool. It would be safe to say that our women’s angora wool coats represent approximately 50% of our coat business.

When you look more closely at the benefits Angora wools offer, it is easy to understand why.

Angora wool, is actually a mix of wools that are blended together to make it more durable and soft. The key ingredient however, comes from the Angora rabbit. The Angora rabbit produces a type of wool that is extremely soft, making clothing extremely comfortable. From my perspective, the main difference between angora and cashmere is how they handle the rain or snow. Angora wools will not give a different odor when wet. In addition, we notice that our angora wool stay nicer much longer than other types of wool coats. Angora wool coats that are 10 years old are still beautiful (of course they have the be properly maintained) and keep their brilliance.

One thing that is worth noting is that angora fur/wool by itself is usually snot strong enough to be tailored; therefore it is blended with regular wool to give it more elasticity. In most cases, angora wool coats are made out of 60% angora fur, and 40% wool. More the angora fur is used in a coat, more the softness is enhanced (and the price since angora wool is more expensive than regular wool!). The mix of wools creates a garment that is extremely warm and soft, but at the same time durable.

Next time you are in the market for a wool coat, do not forget to look at angora wools, you might be very impressed.
