November 6, Real angora goat

My niece has 3 angora goats (which btw give mohair wool). I bought some of her homespun wool for my dye project which I still did not start on, and though well, why not make a real angora goat. One of the animals on my Noah's Ark is the couple Alpine ibex (with horns) and domestic goat.
So I made the goat but now with mohair, and then I stuffed it with goat's hair (not spun) which is all wrinkly and pulled out some of the hairs. This was the resulting goat (which I send to my niece as a thank you for the wool) and in the background is the real goat which served as the example.
