Ovie Ranch Mohair for Sale
Mohair is a soft, strong, warm, lightweight, and lusterous all natural fiber from Angora goats. It is suitable for handspinning, weaving, felting or blending with other fibers such as wool. When blended with wool it will add strength and luster. Mohair takes dye well producing a bright colorful fiber. Mohair also makes good doll hair, doll wigs, and Santa beards.
Mohair is available for sale in white and a variety of natural colors. We hand shear our own mohair twice a year, in the spring and fall. All our mohair has been skirted to remove excess debris. Raw unwashed fleeces are available. In a raw unwashed fleece there is still the natural grease with some dirt. Some vegetal matter may be found in the fleece. Our goats are not coated. They live a natural life style here in the Goose Lake Valley. See our raw fleece washing instructions at the bottom of this page.

Raw Fleece Washing Instructions (mohair and wool):
We have found regular blue Dawn dish soap and warm water works well to wash a fleece. We wash them by hand being careful not to matt or felt them and keep the locks loose. This means gently washing/ dunking/ soaking them in soapy warm water and rinsing thoroughly without too much agitating or scrubbing, then let air dry.
Set up four buckets with warm water (comfortably hot to touch), do two washes and two rinses, rotate and change buckets as the water gets to dirty i.e. the first wash gets dumped, then the second wash becomes the first. The new clean bucket becomes the last rinse and you keep doing this until your fleece is washed. Wash a small towel size of fleece at a time. It's better not to try and do the whole fleece at once i.e. towel size pieces/bucket. Let air dry completely before carding or spinning.
Mohair is a renewable resource!
