Kid Mohair Roving, White
Mohair from Phoenix Farm is hand sheared twice per year from holistic pasture-raised animals -- it is 100% natural! Our herd of colored angora goats range in color from cream to taupe to silver, with some black and red animals as well. Phoenix Farm also supports small, local farms by purchasing their fiber for our store's stock, as well.
This listing is for 1 (one) ounce of a beautiful pencil / pin-drafted white roving from the kid fleece of a goat named Jacob. Kid fleece is the softest and lightest of any clip and this fleece is no exception! Jacob and his 3 brothers live on a farm less than 20 miles away from Phoenix Farm where they provide companionship and mowing services to their owners. Unfortunately, though his elderly owner takes excellent care of Jacob, she can no longer spin his gorgeous fiber, so it was purchased to offer to you! This beautiful, lustrous, soft roving is solid white and requires no pre-drafting prior to spinning. Easy to spin or use the braid as a photo prop or basket filler for your newborn!
Prior to processing, this fleece had been picked through by hand to try to remove all foreign matter and debris picked up in the field. It is very white and very clean, but may contain some small bits of vegetative matter, which are easily removed while spinning. It is stored in a smoke- and pet-free environment. It is ready for you to spin, photograph, dye, or do whatever your imagination inspires!
