We purchased two cashmere goats and two llamas to prototype a goat enterprise around selling fiber. Cashmere is combed off the goat undercoat and is a fiber in demand for its soft, warm and long-wearing characteristics. The average yield is between 4 to 6 ounces of underdown per goat per year. Llama’s fiber yield (weight) after washing is 90 percent. The yield per animal is approximately two to four pounds per shearing, and the animals are sheared every year. The fiber goats and llamas will additionally serve as an educational component in our camps, field trips and workshops to teach the basics around spinning, carding, felting and dyeing wools.
