visitors attended the October meeting of the Medina Spinning and Weaving Guild.
Michael Romanoski and his daughter Celia gave a presentation about pygora fiber
and brought one of their Pygora goats along to the meeting! Celia participates
in her county's 4-H goat project and talked to guild members about her animals
and characteristics of the breed. Michael showed the group how pygora fiber is
processed and spun. The family has a farm, Koru
Fiber and Dairy, in Wellington, Ohio, where they also raise French and
Satin Angoras, Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats, and KuneKune
goat breed was developed by Katharine Jorgensen, a Pygmy goat
breeder in Oregon City, Oregon. To learn more about the breed and this luscious fiber, visit the Pygora Breeders Association website.
