Fiber on the hoof

Recently I bought a Nigora Goat. This goat is produced by mating an Angora goat and a Nigerian Dwarf. What you get is a mini fiber animal. I have been wanting one of these for two years! It took me that long to find a breeder who lived near me. Her wool is very soft. I have spun some of her wool and no one will ever guess it is from a goat.

The first picture is of Kami as a baby. The second is Kami in her summer coat and the third is Kami in her winter coat. One of the best things about all this is I won't have to shear! She sheds her coat in the spring!

Isn't she cute?

LA said... sit with Kami and your spinning wheel and just draw right off of her???? Now that would be a Kodak moment!

I love the pic of her in her winter coat! So soft looking, try to remember to bring some of that tomorrow so that we can feel it.
