Angora is the term used to describe a soft natural fiber made from the wool of the angora goat. Angora wool is silky, lightweight and warm and because of its high cost is often used in combination with other fibers such as wool, cotton, or nylon. Angora is typically used for knitting hats, socks, and sweaters.
Socks are a fabric covering to the foot which may rise to the ankle or above. Socks are worn over the foot and put on before shoes.
