These skeins 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.
This lustrous and lovely brushed yarn is extra soft with a delicate halo.

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 soft, glossy yarn is perfect for next-to-the-skin garments! It will be fabulous knitted into hats, cowls, mitts/cuffs, scarves or extra soft warm throws.
