So that's what yarn made with goat hair looks like ?

Apparently so.

I found goat hair, the long outer hairs.
Hard to work by hand. The result is solid but easily undone.
I think we should use all the hair, the wool too.
My incompetence can also explain the result.

Yesterday, I showed you my first twist. With the second twist, the rope holds better.
In front of is nettle. This makes it possible  to compare with the same manufacturing process.
I think that I must try to twist the goat hair with a fusaiole.

Here are my two attempts. Strong but difficult to keep tight.
I think all the hair is necessary to make a rope.
