Yes, it should be washed before spinning, using very hot water and some
type of detergent, bathing 2 times (let it soak for 30 min each) and rinsing
at least twice. It is common in the last rinse to add either a few ounces of
white vinegar to the fiber.


Yolk: the wax or grease in a mohair fleece that protects the fiber from
sun and chemical damage. When washing a mohair fleece VERY HOT
water & ammonia  is required to dissolve the yolk.

Our flock is kept with the intention to produce quality fleece for the use in products by fiber artist.

2015 fiber crop, is OK.

To us, the raw fiber is like a un-cut diamond.
To make a amazing diamond, you have to start with a quality stone.
We are now using more expensive products to help with the issues.
We are know feeding a special feed, designed for Angora goats.
Both of these changes have amazing results. But do cost more.
To make ends meet, the cost of the raw fiber has to go up, so we can continue to produce the raw
fleece for the fiber artist.


A word on VM.
These are raw fleeces, there will be some vm, You cannot put
coats on Angora Goats. We do
skirt,
while we shear.
Different animal seem to have more vm, some do have some dander & yolk.
We try to price accordingly.
I am a fiber artist also, so I understand the effort to prepare the fleece.

If when you receive the fleece, please open on arrival, and inspect, if you are not totally happy,
please email us.
My fleece has been doing amazing !!!!     I know you will be happy too !!!!!    Vickie

A few changes for 2015 Pictures
We are taking a picture of the staple length while still on the
goat. With a small strand, to try to show the crimp, better.
This way you can see the true color of the fleece on the
animal.
Also taking a picture as it is hanging on their front.
In a
full fleece, you will be getting different staple lengths.
The pictured length, while the front well be longer.
Some area maybe a little shorter.
