Specializing in “red” Cashmere Goats only
Breeding Stock and Fiber Wethers For Sale
with natural colored cashmere fiber
for spinning and weaving.
All goat breeds will grow a very short down fiber for winter protection but only Cashmere Goats grow a down fiber long enough to be used for spinning and weaving. Developed in Australia and imported 29+ years ago to the U.S.A., Cashmere Goats are double coated goats with harsher guard hair on the body and a softer down undercoat fiber known as “cashmere” grown for warmth.
Cashmere Goats are one of three recognized fiber goat breeds. Unlike the other fiber goat breeds, the color of the cashmere fiber is not the same as the body color and guard hair. Cashmere is considered an “exotic” fiber.
Foxmoor Farm is a small goat farm located in the the Pacific Northwest. We live in the Willamette Valley and our farm is in the hills above Silverton, Oregon. We began raising Cashmere Goats in 1991. We are goat breeders raising solid colored Cashmere Goats with good conformation and an even length and style of cashmere fiber. In 2003 we decided to emphasize a special color and now we have a herd of only “red” Cashmere Goats. It took 13 years of hard work to achieve our goal.
