About

About 10 years ago I started working with Angora mohair and other types of wool to fix vintage troll dolls. After I started seeing that this gorgeous hair was being used for other dolls, for instance reborn babies, I decided to try my hand at selling since I always had some left over. So my first initial sales were to reborn artists. Later on I started selling to other doll artists, for example the Blythe doll. Now I specialize in the longer lengths.
In 2007 I purchased my first young buck and doe to breed as I found I was needing more mohair. To make a long story shorter, after I had my first kid (goat), I was hooked on these goats. I bred again plus bought a couple more does and a couple more bucks and away we went! These are very addicting animals to have. So much fun!
I just love working with this beautiful hair! I love the softness and silkiness! I now own 23 (I lost one last…

I just love working with this beautiful hair! I love the softness and silkiness! I now own 23 (I lost one last April). What neat animals they are! It's a wonder that such an animal can have so many uses for it's hair along with such wonderful personalities. Mohair has been called "the diamond fiber" because of it's wonderful shine and durability. It has been used for centuries for spinning to make clothing because you can put it up against the skin and it's hypoallergenic too. Wonderful fiber!
Pretty much all of the mohair I process is from my own goats with the exception of maybe some I've had left over from when I used to buy it before I had my own goats.
I process all the hair myself from shearing to the finished combed product. All my hair is washed at least 3 times by hand, conditioned, and rinsed thoroughly. I have my own special blends for washing to save the special quality of this hair.
The hair is laid out to air dry and then each lock is combed individually, conditioned again, rinsed and laid out to air dry. I don't disturb it after it's dry except to cut off any frizzies, get my pictures, and package it up for you.
All my gentle methods save the softness and beauty of this unique hair! It's so soft and smells so good you will forget it is goat hair!

NOTE: The products I use have fragrance.
