I was lucky enough to meet a woman at a garage sale who bred a rare bread of angora goats on the East Cape of Aotearoa, New Zealand. It came at the perfect time as I had just been gifted a spinning wheel and was learning to spin my own yarn. I have absolutely loved learning to spin, and using this rare mohair fleece has been a dream come true.
These pieces I have created are made from the yarn I have spun up from the fleeces of angora goats. I don't think any of my handspun, handknitted garment will ever be the same as I learn more about how to master the wheel, which makes every piece incredibly unique.
I have always wanted to be as transparent as I possibly can about how my garments are made. Now I can point out exactly what goat each fleece has come from, and explain every step of how each garment has been made.
