In this research, some physical characteristics and uses of the coarse fibers obtained from hair goats raised in some provinces of Turkey were examined. For the general provinces, the diameter of fiber and natural length of fiber were 92.1±0.56 µ and 11.6±1.37 cm resepctively. According to the findings, the coarse fibres of hair goats can be used in products such as tents, stiffening cloth, card weaving, floor weaving (çul ve cicim), saddle-bags, bags, sacks, animal feeding bags and socks.
