MohairCinches' Shop Announcement

Custom 100% mohair cinches and Vaquero style cinchas.

Mohair is the long, silky hair of the Angora goat which is carded, spun and corded. 100% Mohair cord is all natural angora goat hair.

What are the benefits of using mohair in cinch weaving?

* All natural animal fiber.
* Exceptionally soft, resilient, breathable, and durable.
* Wicks sweat and moisture away from your horse.
*Worn by sensitive horses that tend to chafe, or are allergic to synthetic or non-breathing materials commonly used for cinches today.
* Your horse will like the smell and feel of it.
* It is an ideal material for making sturdy, comfortable, and long lasting cinches provided it is kept free from dried on sweat and dirt.

To clean your mohair cinch, we recommend hand washing in a vinegar and slightly warm water. Use the same water temperature for washing and rinsing to reduce or prevent shrinkage. Do not brush the horse hairs off of the cinch as this will felt into the cinch for more comfort for your horse. Hang it and let it air dry. If there is any shrinkage after drying, your cinch will stretch back to the original length with use.

Please note: When you receive your cinch, it will measure approximately one inch shorter than your order length. This is to compensate for the natural stretch of the mohair.
