About Catawampus Farm

Catawampus Farm is run by a fiber addicted midwife and her patient spouse (who prefers woodworking). We raise jacob sheep and naturally colored and white angora goats.  The animals produce lovely soft wool and mohair. We shear the goats twice a year, and process the fleece ourselves or at a small local spinning mill. All of our naturally colored mohair blends are made with hand-selected wool fleeces from other small Maine farms.

We are members of the Colored Angora Goat Breeders Association and the Jacob Sheep Breeders Association.

Forget any old concepts you may have of itchy mohair. Fine mohair is so silky and soft! It gives yarn a lovely halo, sheen, softness and strength. When blended with wool, I think it makes a perfect yarn which is soft, light and warm. Spinning, knitting, weaving are all about fondling fiber, right? My philosophy: “Life’s too short for tiny needles and scratchy yarn!”
