There’s a long and interesting story about Thermohair, which started in 1992. We won’t recount it here but check their website and have a read. Essentially, they are the innovators who started using kid mohair (the hair from young Angora goats) in socks when every one thought they were crazy for doing so, since mohair is a premium fabric.
Thermohair now sources their mohair from South Africa, who has the only commercially-viable Angora goat herd in the world. The mohair is knit into socks and other products in Canada. There are few mills left in Canada that can do this, unfortunately, as most textile production has left the country.
