About Kid Hollow

Under the watchful eyes of my Karakachan guardian dogs, my Colored Angora goats graze in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains outside of Charlottesville, Virginia. For over twenty-five years, I have selectively bred for healthy, parasite-resistent animals with fine fleeces and sturdy bodies. My animals consistently produce soft, lustrous fiber. Visitor are welcomes. Just email or call ahead and meet the "kids" of Kid Hollow Farm.

My animals are shorn in January and July. Goats take more time to shear than sheep because they have fiber on their legs and faces and many skin folds to navigate through. As the mohair is removed, it is skirted and the best is set aside to be sold as raw fleeces for hand-spinners.
