Now that the weather has gotten warmer my Nigora goat, Kami, has started to shed her wool. She can look pretty strange this time of year. I wonder what the neighbor's think? There are three grades to this kind of wool and I am fortunate that I have a C. This means she sheds instead of having to be sheared. Here is what she looks like today. If you look closely you will see how her long wool has been brushed off her back. See the darker color underneath? She is shedding all over but it is most noticeable on her back right now. I wonder what Philippe will think when she doesn't look like a sheep anymore?
This is the wool I have gotten so far. This process of brushing her will take a few days. I wish you could feel it. It is very soft!
