Removal of guard hair.

Some of the finest fibered animals in the world have two types of fibers; the guard hair, which repels nature's elements and protects their soft down fiber.  The soft down fiber keeps the animal warm.

It is this soft down fiber that is desired for creating incredibly soft yarns and warm garments.

The process of removing the guard hair from the down is called De-Hairing.  This tedious process is performed part by machine and part by hands and eyes on.

This process is included in the pricing for all haired fibers.
