Farm to Fashion Mohair from Pure American Naturals
The Glen Cauffman Farm, in Perry County, is home to more than 150 Angora goats. The herd is kept on more than 15 fenced acres of the farm, with no crowding or areas of grass cover loss. The ecologically-friendly mohair and wool textile fibers are uniquely certified (Animal Welfare Approved) as humanely, sustainably and responsibly produced, processed, manufactured and distributed by Pure American Naturals.
Mohair is hypoallergenic, luxuriously soft and doesn’t smell, shrink or mat. Socks, infinity scarves, hats, headbands, hand-warmers, mittens, yarn and more have the PA Preferred branding. Choosing to buy PA Preferred products directly impacts local farmers and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s local economy.
Dr. Judith M. Shoemaker, owner of the integrative veterinary medicine and therapy practice Always Helpful Veterinary Services, located at Fincastle Farm in Nottingham, provides veterinary care and husbandry protocols for the herd and creates educational material for humane care and handling of fiber goats. Sixty-five beautiful Angora live at her farm, and the Pure American Naturals products can be purchased there.
“Prepare for the coming of colder weather with our warm, comfortable socks, accessories and cozy winter wear that also make wonderful holiday gifts,” shares Shoemaker.
