A little bit of science
The scales of the mohair fibers are flattened and overlay each other other giving a smooth surface (unlike wool). This gives mohair its silky soft handle and high lustre. It also gives your Corrymoor Socks their unique hard-wearing, anti-bacterial (no smell), wicking and non-felting properties.
St. Jean Pied-de-Port to Orisson
Consider splitting your first day and stopping at Refuge Orisson. On paper, it can feel like a lazy start, but in reality, it’s a tough climb. The first days walk is incredibly steep, and in the 8km to Orisson, you ascend almost 1,000m.
