Anyone have experience with using goat hair for making yarn and cloth? I don't have goats that produce wool like an angora, only dairy goats and meat goats but they shed enough hair that it seems like I should be able to use that hair for something. I know people use dog hair and car hair for such things and the goat hair should be about the same kind of length. I just don't know how to go about it.
