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?
i recently read the fleece and fiber sourcebook and it had some really good info on working with cashmere. i have a friend with a spinning wheel and plan on combing some out for her this spring!
