Cécile Remond is a very attentive breeder. Every day, she comes to take care of these little ones: Angora goats. With their very long coat, they have become a rare and singular species. Twice a year, it’s mowing time. In a very diligent manner so as not to rush the animal, in fifteen minutes, up to 120 kilos of wool are collected by Laura Bec, animal clipper.
If she applies to take care of her breeding, Cécile Remond also benefits. Once the shearing is done, the wool is sent to Italy, the only country that still practices spinning. This then makes it possible to produce several mohair garments: sweaters, scarves, hats but also socks, the star of these products. Thanks to this business, the breeder manages to generate an annual turnover of 30,000 euros.
