Just a few hundred metres from the N2, the enormous warehouse called The Mohair Mill Shop and Décor belies the treasures inside. This is the biggest component in a miniature village of shops, galleries and a restaurant called Peppermill.
The Mohair Mill is a lifestyle and décor centre brimming with exquisite mohair goodies, décor items, clothing, accessories, art and more. The mohair is sourced locally from beautiful goats (some of whom live in the shaded area opposite the warehouse) and there is a huge focus on job creation in the area. The mohair products include scarves, socks, blankets, rugs and so on. There are also plenty of leather products (such as shoes, hats, belts and furniture).
The sheer variety of luxury products makes The Mohair Mill shop a really exciting tourist hotspot. It is also perfect for gifts, with specialised items, such as pregnancy pillows and funky handmade shoes that can be customised. Unique fashion items by local designers are showcased here too.
