Fiber goats Some goats produce special fibers or wools in their coats that can be spun to make yarn for kniting and crocheting clothing. Angora goats produce curly long wool called mohair. All goats produce a fuzzy undercoat of soft wool in the winter to help keep them warm. This wool is called cashmere. Some goats produce so much cashmere that it is worth the time and effort to comb or shear it off them at the end of winter. You can use a female or castrated male goat for a fiber goat project. However, you must keep their fleeces clean all winter and harvest their fleeces every year. A fiber goat project is perfect for someone who likes goats, wants to learn how to spin, and likes to knit or crochet. The Michigan State University Bulletin Office, 10-B Agricultureall, MSU, East Lansing ,MI 48824-1039 offers for sale at $2.10, Your 4-H Angora Goat Project, Item # 4H1480, 40 pp. This is a very informative booklet, but does not include a record book. click here for order form.
