These skeins, firmly twisted, were spun using the fleeces from our angora goats (young adults). Their fibre was blended with wool for added memory to help your garments keep their shape.

Using acid dye we dyed some skeins in different colours. Mohair lends itself especially well to dyeing, keeping its sheen while taking and holding dyes in clear vivid shades.
This yarn is fabulous knitted into hats, cowls, mitts/cuffs, scarves or extra soft warm throws.
