Cashmere?

I just harvested the first ounce of fiber off of my goat Chamomile! She has started to blow her coat just like a dog does in the springtime. She wasn’t exactly thrilled to get brushed, but I’m guessing she’ll be the easy one. BB thinks everything and everyone is out to get her.

Now that the harvest has started I need to go back through my email and see what it will take to get my fiber tested. I would love to be able to legally call the fiber cashmere not just Cashgora. Cashgora being the breed of goat. They are a cashmere angora cross.

I don’t think I mentioned it but the fiber is sooooooo soft. Alpaca is lovely. Wool is amazing. But my goats? So soft and fine. I have my husband clamoring for a pair of cashmere socks. We shall see…
