CARE INSTRUCTIONS

  • Be aware that minimal colour bleeding may occur in the first washes. This is not abnormal and can be due to differences in water chemistry, the used detergent.

FROM FLEECES TO YARN
Rest assured that our yarn is authentic, comes from well-treated animals, and has been processed by small Canadian fibre mills.

After shearing our Angora goats (in Spring and Fall), we sort and clean the fleeces to remove dirty parts and as much vegetation (hay, straw) as possible in order to get the best quality product. Then, we send them to the fibre mill where they will be washed, carded, spun in rovings and yarn. 
When we receive the cones, we put them in skeins, wash, hand dye them and finally rewind them so they are ready to be in your hands. During all these steps, the remaining vegetation will be removed. 
But it can happen that you still find some hay stuck in the roving or yarn in which case the best advice is to remove them by hand while you are working on your project. 
Don’t let that stop you from enjoying the incomparable softness of our mohair. We wish you a good time of knitting, crocheting, weaving, spinning, felting,... !!

ABOUT OUR DYEING PROCESS
We carefully hand dyed our yarns in small batches using professional acid dyes. The colours are rich, vibrant and will be long lasting.

Each skein is unique due to the process of hand-dyed yarn. You might find some variations of colours between skeins and batches. This makes them special, one of a kind.

For a project requiring multiple skeins, we recommend buying enough yarn from the same batch to finish it and also alternating skeins every two rows to ensure an even blend of colours.

To minimise our environmental impact during the whole dyeing process, we use water collected in our rain barrels.

We rinsed our yarns until the water runs clear and washed them using a wool wash. However, minimal colour bleeding may occur in the first washes.
