Fiber on the hoof

This is Kami, my Nigora. She is shedding right now and I am able to get a lot of wool each day. Doesn't she look funny? All I have to do is brush her to get that wonderful fiber.

For those who don't know, a Nigora is a cross between a Nigerian Dwarf goat and an Angora goat. You can get different grades of wool with Nigoras. Some have to be sheared, too. I was fortunate to get one that sheds. You can read more about this breed here.

The next critter that will blow his coat here will be Max. That ought to be interesting. I have never seen a Great Pyrenees shed before.



  1. Have you started spinning it yet???

  2. No, not yet. I want to wash it first.

  3. I didn't know that Max would shed. How interesting. You will have to show us the spun wool when done.

  4. If its dog har you need, I can supply you free of charge!
