Captivating Cape Town.

Woven from the finest South African Mohair and luxurious Australian Merino wool, our Cape Town bunch offers a distinctive, vintage-inspired cloth with a strong personality.

The Cape Town bunch combines two exceptional fibres:

  • South African Mohair: Renowned for its silky sheen and luxurious feel. In this collection, we specifically use summer kid mohair, which is first sheared from young Angora goats around six months old making it the finest and softest Mohair available.
  • Australian Merino Wool: Known for its incredible softness, warmth, and breathability. Merino wool comes from Merino sheep, known for their ultra-fine fleece.

Naturally breathable and cool, thanks to its this composition, Cape Town boasts the inherent wrinkle resistance of wool, making it a versatile choice for year-round wear.

The Cape Town collection is available in a variety of patterns. These include a monochrome story in tartan checks, stripes, puppytooth and Prince of Wales checks. Obtainable in sophisticated shades such as blacks, navy and greys and for those seeking a touch of vibrancy, this collection also features pops of colour like lush greens and rusty browns for a wider appeal.


At Standeven Fabrics, sustainability is an important factor of our business. Upholding traditional manufacturing, we prioritise ethical practices throughout our supply chain, from sourcing to production.

Certified to the Responsible Wool Standard (RWS) and Responsible Mohair Standard (RMS). We ensure the highest ethical standards when working with wool and mohair. As a testament to this commitment, our Cape Town collection proudly features a number of RWS/RMS certified options.
