Angora wool fibres, light micrograph. The fibres have overlapping scales, which is typical of animal hair. Angora wool, also known as mohair, was originally taken from the white angora goat, which is native to Turkey. The world demand for mohair has lead to cross-breeding with domestic goats as well as the introduction of the goat to Australia and South America. Differential interface contrast. Magnification: x25 at 35mm size.
