Most of my animals are shorn in January and July. Jonathan Hearne, my shearer, comes from Asheville, NC and gets them finished in a day or two. Goats take more time to shear than sheep because they have fiber on their legs and faces and many skin folds to navigate through. As the mohair is removed, it is skirted and the best is set aside to be sold as raw fleeces for hand-spinners.
My fleeces are graded as 1st clip kid, 2nd clip kid, yearling, and adult. I have white and colored fleeces available. Some are washed but most are raw. All are well-skirted. Prices vary with quality.
