Okay, so, because I have seen the incorrect information in so many places, here is some info on fibers for the non-fiber-holics.

Cashmere comes from Cashmere Goats.

Mohair comes from Angora Goats.

Angora comes from Angora Rabbits.

Angora is a corruption of Ankara, in Turkey, the place where mohair and angora originally came from, as did Angora Cats.
