    I have a myotonic buck and some boer does that grow a very fluffy coat in the winter and am wondering how to make it into a fiber that can be spun into yarn (in the spring after they are ready to shed it). What are good brushes to comb off the cashmere? How do you clean the cashmere/prepare it for spinning? Do you comb it, card it, etc? Is there a book somewhere that would be helpful?

    This is an old thread. But you could probably find fiber groups on Facebook. There are also a few people on here.
