Wool-producing animals:
  
We can find sheep of various breeds in various parts of India.
 
However, sheep's fleece is not the only source of wool, though wool commonly available in the market is sheep wool. Yak wool is ordinary in Tibet and Ladakh. Mohair is received from angora goats discovered in hilly areas like Jammu and Kashmir.
 
Goat hair is also used to make wool. The Kashmiri goat's fur is soft. Pashmina shawls are perfect shawls made from them. Camels' body fur (hair) is also used to make wool. Wool is also produced by llamas and alpacas located in South America.
