Combing for cashmere

I spent the weekend at Agriturismo Due Papaveri outside Modena lending a hand in their restaurant and helping to comb their cashmere goats to collect the cashmere.  They strap the goats into this guillotine-looking device to hold them in place during combing.  After this experience, I have a whole new appreciation for cashmere sweaters!
