The Goats Cashmere Goats produce a fine fiber that is used to make cashmere sweaters and other fine knitwear. The goats begin growing their Cashmere late spring and start to shed late winter. Many of our goats have long guard hairs to protect the fine cashmere underneath. We brush our goats starting in Late February and all through March. Some farms in other parts of world will shear cashmere goats, but we have found it is best for our herd to brush them out. In the spring we will milk our does for a short season. All the milk goes to the farms goat milk soap production. We produce a large selection of Cashmere goat milk soaps along with cashmere roving and knitwear from the farm.

The Sheep A fiber farm would not be complete with out a flock of sheep. We have a mix of Romney's and Wensleydale's. The different fibers lend themselves to a variety of fiber projects. As a knitter, spinner and felter I feel it is important to keep variety in the flock. We currently only have one papered Wensleydale ram lamb for sale. He is a papered 91% White Wensleydale Ram born 3/11/19. Wensleydale's are a rare breed from the UK that produce a silky curly long fleece very popular with hand spinners and felters. They are a multi-purpose breed for meat and fiber. They are a larger breed sheep. He is an easy going lamb that has been around a LGD and out on electro net fencing. He has been on rotational pasture since May. He has been tested and is OPP and Johne's negative. Asking $650
