Cashmere goats are hand-combed in the Spring to harvest the wonderful, incredibly soft cashmere fiber which forms the goats’ winter insulation. Cashmere grows in the winter to keep the goat warm and then falls out in the Spring. If you’re planning to visit Tuscany think about it. That is, together with us, you will be able to participate in the annual spring combing. A truly authentic farm experience!
