Raw Fleece


 

Our fleece is priced per ounce. This is raw fleece, as stated, which means it has been combed and packaged directly from our goats. As such, it will contain some guard hair and vegetative debris. However, we strive to offer only the cleanest fleeces for raw fibre sales. 

$18.00 CDN + Tax per ounce (oz.), plus shipping and handling. (Note: 1oz = 28.3grams)

We also offer for sale most of our show fleeces if you can be patient enough to wait for them to come back to us in the fall when the show season is done.  If you are interested in one of these fleeces, please contact us early as some are reserved before the show season even starts!

Cashmere Guard Hair for tying Fly Fishing Lures!
 
We have had several requests over the years from Fly fishing lure makers for samples of the guard hair these goats produce.  It seems the coarse, hollow guard hair is well suited for Fly Fishing Lures.  The added bonus is that cashmere guard hair comes in an unlimited variety of colours and lengths.  We are pleased to be able to make use of another one of these goats many gifts.  Please contact us with your specific needs and we would be happy to collect a custom mix of shades for your next project.
