This Scabal archive of fabric bunches goes back to 2005 when we launched the Fabrics Catalogue,
an online tool in which you can see all fabrics with all details and pictures.
“Kharisa” is the word used by Bushmen of South Africa meaning extremely soft. Scabal’s new collection has been skillfully created from the finest and most expensive mohair bale ever produced - had to bear the very same name.
The Kharisa mohair fibre measures an average of 21 micron. The usual kid mohair measures between 25 and 36 micron. It has been carefully blended together with an Ultrafine Super 180’s wool under the controlled expert supervision of the Scabal design team.
Not only the fineness makes this exquisite natural material so exceptional, but also the combination of a silky sheen with an incredible softness and strength. It also keeps the skin extremely cool, repels dirt and does not give off fluff or crease.
Mohair, which comes from the Angora goat, is one of the oldest natural fibres used by men for the first time over 3,400 years ago. Now Scabal can proudly claim to have introduced the finest mohair ever.
The fine kid mohair was obtained through stringent genetic selection of the goat variety in the course of a century. Climate and nature did the rest. It comes from the Camdeboo region, a desolate area in South Africa where the Bushmen live in harmony with untamed nature. The goats run around freely in the open air. Before shearing, they are carefully washed and dried in the sun. Afterwards, the wool is packed with the utmost care and stored in germ-free surroundings.
Scabal’s new collection, Kharisa, clearly has a soul and is appreciated by connoisseurs worldwide, who are constantly looking for the very latest in quality and comfort.
