Mohair from Phoenix Farm is hand sheared twice per year from holistic pasture-raised animals -- it is 100% natural! We raise our sheep and goats without the use of hormones or unnecessary antibiotics and they graze on lush grass grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizer. Our herd of colored angora goats range in color from cream to taupe to silver, with some black and red animals as well.
This listing is for a 4-ounce braid of gorgeous, soft, mohair and merino blended wool roving hand dyed in vibrant shades of purple, blue, red, and a touch of orange -- a Phoenix Farm Fiber colorway called "Aurora Borealis." It is a beautiful fiber with excellent crimp, softness, sheen, and that telltale mohair "halo." This roving spins up beautifully for all weights of yarn! This roving is 70% Mohair and 30% Merino wool -- the mohair comes from one of my angora goat females, Gem (last photo) and the Merino comes from a family farm in Colorado.
I use only chemical-free food grade dyes so that your fiber is not only safe, but is undamaged by harsh chemicals -- no phosphates, copper, or harsh mordants. Once dyed, the fiber is washed several times in hot water with all natural soap and air dried. The resulting yarn will be non-toxic and colorfast in vibrant shades of northern lights and bright sun. I can reproduce this colorway on larger quantities, if desired -- just message me for details.
This fiber is stored in a smoke- and pet-free environment.
