Angora Rabbit vs. Angora Goat

Being as scientific as I am, I don't usually catch any mistakes on CSI, however today, I did.

So anyone who knits or likes fiber as much as I do know that, angora rabbit produces angora fur, and angora goat produces mohair. Both have very soft hand and very brushed look to it.

Tonight, David and I were just watching an old episode of CSI that I've never seen before (it's rare, but it happens) while I was winding some yarn, Catherine and Nick found some "angora" on the boy's body. Catherine proceeded to say that the angora fiber came from angora goat. Ding ding ding - alarm went off and immediately I said, "She's wrong!! She's Wrong!! Angora fiber comes from angora bunny, not angora goat! Angora goat produces mohair!!!"

Ok, I am a dork...

Octopus Knits was just talking about the scientific irregularities in shows. I've only watch CSI once or twice, but that was enough for me to find mistakes.

I find mistakes in shows all the time. Especially little kid shows. According to The Backyardagins, Manatees live in swamps....
