    Hi! I'm Betty from New Mexico and own Weedeater Farm. I raise Navajo Angora Goats for fiber. I have a small herd and this is my first year of breeding. I have TWO bucklings already and still have one more doe that is bred. If you want to find out more about the Navajo Angora Goats, check out their site: http://www.navajoangoragoat.org/.

    Great to have you here- always good to know about unusual goats (at least for me.)

    I spin it! Right now I'm still trying to fill my stash back up, once that is done, I will start selling extra.

    Does it turn out like yarn? Then you make socks, etc? What is the texture? Obviously I'm a dairy goater...

    Yes, it is yarn, once it is spun. Mohair yarn, like you can find in sweaters at stores. Most of mine is soft, I do have a couple that have coarser fiber, that I use for socks and rug yarn.
