Goats produce a couple of useful fibers. Angora goats produce mohair. That's the kind of goats I have. The other type of fiber is cashmere. Cashmere is not from a specific breed of goat. It's a measurement of the thickness of the downy undercoat that can be produced by various goats. I have never had a cashmere producing goat in part because they are often combed rather than being sheared like the Angora goats are. Having spun this skein of yarn may have changed my mind. I still don't think I would be good at the planning and organization required to get my goats combed appropriately but I wouldn't say no if a cashmere goat arrived on my property. The fiber is just so fabulous!

Our yarn is wound into hanks. If you would like us to wind the yarn into balls for easier knitting or weaving, please let us know. We are happy to provide this service at no charge. Please note this may require cutting the yarn if the hank has too many yards to be wound into a single ball.
