Mohair is one of the oldest known natural fibers used in textiles. Consisting of a protein fiber made from the hair of an angora goat, this particular type of wool is known for its supreme luster, sheen, durability and resilience. With excellent insulating properties and wicking capabilities, mohair is suitable for year ’round usage keeping one warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Typically, the hair used for apparel is of a younger goat due to the fact that it has a soft hand.

Flannel for Fall

It may be Indian Summer here in San Francisco but we’re warming up to the Fall season with this light brown suit in a Super 120’s flannel wool by Vitale Barberis Canonico
The light beige or you could call it Oatmeal has a nice light texture and nap to it.
At only 270 gr it is the perfect weight for the Bay Area and a Fall wedding. Just giving it the right amount of warmth and texture without making the wearer too hot .
