Shearing is done ,..... now time for sorting out ! (copy)

And here it is last Tuesday February 13th Laura sheared all our goats ....

This is the first time mowing has fallen on a snowy day ...

It was cold but we took good care of our little animals ...

- red lights to warm up the the smaller ones

- Frédérique made them a little fleece overcoat

They spent the first night tight against each other and none of them was cold. By passing the hand under the coats we feel the heat ..

On the other hand all the week it has rained, it is only today sunday that they went outside to take advantage of the blue sky and the sun ... one kept his coat to go outside !! ...

Since this mowing, Frédérique and Marie Thérèse sorted, each fleece to remove all the impurities, hay, straw and we also dried the fleeces because with the humidity that we had in Sologne since Christmas, the fleeces were wet ..

The fleeces are beautiful, not too dirty with a very soft and fine wool ... that's what we are looking for ...

Next week we will prepare our batches by wool category.

We adapt their diet according to their wool production, so it is very important to keep track of animal fleeces per animal.

Then a big part of the fleeces will go to Castres to the Sicamohair for the transformation and another part will go to the spinning of the Bardine to be spun on the Minimills machine and make the Chambord's wool 100% Mohair and the wool of the Maugerie 70% mohair and 30% Suri ..... discover it on the online store

In 2018 there will be a new wool ... surprise ... I'll talk about it later …
