The Noddy Goat

Noddy goat

 

As strange as it may sound my fiber journey began when I helped my son babysit at my neighbor’s house. She was a crocheter. After seeing all the fabulous things she made I wanted to learn how. From there I learned how to knit. Then our small group went to Shepherd’s Harvest and I discovered Angora goats! Of course that led to my first spinning wheel and so on and so forth. I now have 5 angora goats with the arrival of some kids this spring. My goats vary in color from white, silver peacock, and mahogany. I do all of the processing myself. I shear, wash, dye and spin the fiber. I particularly love core spinning mohair into big bulky yarns. My business name is “NoddyGoat”. (A pun on the niddy-noddy.) I became at vendor at Anoka Fiber Works in February. My spot incudes mohair locks, kid mohair, adult mohair, and spun mohair. I also love to felt.  So I also offer felted scarves, hats, fingerless mitts, and flowers at the shop. Please stop by my booth and check it out.
