According to our Department of Agriculture, angora goats may be the most efficient fiber producers on Earth. These markers of mohair came from and were named after Ankara (Angora before 1930), the Turkish province where they have thrived for centuries. Turkey guarded these goats against exportation until 1849 when seven does and two bucks were imported into the United States. Fine hair from yearling and younger animals is used for fly tying dubbing. Angora is a good seal substitute. Many tiers prefer angora for dubbing rough fly bodies that have a lot of trailing random length hairs sticking out.
