ABOUT THE FABRICS
Mohair wool is a type of textile derived from the hair of the Angora goat. Compared to sheep wool, mohair is much softer, and it also has a notable sheen and luster. Mohair is also much more elastic than most types of wool, it is not very flammable, and it is crease-resistant.
Because of the unique attributes of this type of wool, mohair is considered to be a luxury textile, and garments made entirely from this substance can be quite expensive. However, it's much more common to find mohair that has been mixed with other fabrics; even when this fiber is only used in small quantities, it makes any fabric of which it is a part much more elastic, shiny, and durable.
Polyamide properties allow it to be a durable material, as well as resistant.
Polyamide and polyamide fiber blend have a firm position in swimwear/beachwear because they are easy to care for and have good wear properties: it is light, strong, quick-drying, and easy to clean.
We know Polyamide means using plastic... Well, plastic can be recycled, right? We try to find the good side in everything so in this garment, we can only suggest to use it well, do not wash it too much and please when you don't want to use it anymore find another life for it. It can be used to recycle fibers!
Acrylic fiber closely resembles the look and feel of wool fibers. Acrylic fabric is lightweight, warm, and soft to the touch. It is thus used in place of wool or blended with sheep wool or cashmere.
