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. It is a beautiful natural white with excellent crimp, softness, sheen, and that telltale mohair "halo." This roving spins up beautifully for all weights of yarn! This wool takes dye easily and the natural white color allows you to dye it any color of the rainbow! Roving is 70% Mohair and 30% Merino wool -- the mohair comes from one of my angora goat females, Hazel (last photo) and the Merino comes from a family farm in Colorado.
This fiber is stored in a smoke- and pet-free environment. It is ready for you to dye, spin, or felt! This also makes a beautiful photo prop for infant / newborn photography -- I can sell custom-length braids to photographers for $5 per foot. Contact me for custom orders!
* Please keep in mind that my animals are pasture raised and are not covered. I do heavily skirt my fleeces to remove second cuts, debris, and soiled fiber. However, some minor amounts of small VM may make it through.
Here at The Phoenix, we raise happy, healthy animals in a way that Mother Nature would approve! We offer seasonal products grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides, steroids, hormones, or unnecessary antibiotics. We come as close to nature as human intervention will allow.
Everything at Phoenix Farm is raised using organic and holistic principles as we strive to be ecologically responsible. All animal fiber is harvested humanely with no harm or injury to the animals. Fiber is washed with plant-based soaps and dyed with chemical free food-grade dyes. When you buy fiber from Phoenix Farm Fiber, you can be confident that you are getting the most natural fibers without sacrificing quality.
