All Natural Black
This one of a kind throw is made of very rare natural black mohair in a 2/2
twill weave. It is a study in stark contrast. The rose plaid design is done with yarns dyed with
the natural dye, cochineal. Warmth and
comfort are guaranteed with this woven two and three quarter pound garment.
This weave is dense and being true to its character, the mohair constrains the garment to lay gracefully however it is placed.

(kid mohair) is both coveted and rare.
Young buck Zebby
True black herd sire, Zebulun, when he was a yearling buck in the early
1990's. We say true black because his fleece never turned silver. He was black as a lump of coal, black as midnight without moon nor star. We have few goats that keep that kind of deep rich black hue to adulthood. His genetic input greatly impacts the Singing Falls herd. Later clips from him were less fine, of course, and as he aged his fleece held less crimp. Nonetheless, his progeny to this day are our best doll hair goats, inheriting his lock fineness coupled with a more relaxed curl all along the lock.
