    I do. I felt with my Cashmere and I am learning how to felt Cashmere hats. Now Angora will not felt very well, it is a lot harder and takes like 5x longer to get it to felt. The Type A Pygora is the same, B is a little easier to felt my not much and the C is the most like Cashmere and it felt easier.
    That is why we can not wash our cashmere goats at all, their fiber will felt right on their body.
