Yarns

After washing, the vibrant colors are attained by hand dyeing with natural and synthetic dyes. The fibers are then carded on a large drum carder and handspun on a Ashford Joy wheel to give a unique texture.   We minimize the processing of our yarns to preserve the special natural qualities that most modern yarns lose. Which means, you will occasionally find small bits of nature in the material. (Machine yarns are often over processed using strong chemicals that cause the breakage of the fiber and lowers the quality of the yarn.)

Novelty yarns include a wide variety of yarns made with such special effects as slubs, produced by intentionally including small lumps in the yarn structure, yarns with varying thickness introduced during production. Natural fibres, are allowed to retain their normal irregularities, producing the characteristic uneven surface of the finished fabric..

Raw Bulk Mohair

Mohair is the product of our Angora Goats. All of the fibre that any goat produces will vary in gauge and pigment throughout the entire fleece. This variation is primarily genetic and is also influence by the age and diet and the overall health of the animal.  Areas of the fleece that are continually exposed to soiling can also contribute to its color.  

Raw mohair is exactly that, raw.  The sheered goats hair is weighed and the average length measured, then packaged for shipment.  The buyer assumes any further processing responsibility.
