Whenever I’m on a shoot, the one prop I cannot live without is a mohair throw. Other interiors stylists I know can confirm: the mohair throw is crucial.
Mohair, woven from angora goat and wool, has a great texture. You can toss it on the end of a bed or over the arm of a sofa and it falls just right and scrunches even better. Plus, mohair is dyed in the best colors: chalky grey, vegetal green, or not-too-millennial pink. Whether you’re styling a room for a photograph or just as a start the day, a colorful mohair throw is your new secret weapon. Here are our favorite sources:
