Meet Frank


Frank from Edgewood, New Mexico has a booth at the Santa Fe Saturday Farmers Market where he displays hats and other items of apparel that are made from yarns that he gets from the Navajo Angora Goats he raises.  The yarns are spun and hand dyed to make a variety of colors for his wares. Frank cheerfully donned and modeled a few hats for you to see and enjoy.

  8. Frank is a good sport and his hats would be welcome on a cold day. Did you buy one to take home with you? It would be snuggly warm in that Minnesota winter.

  13. Beautiful colors! I'm guessing Navajo angora goats are heritage - rare - animals. I'm always glad to hear when someone's doing something to maintain diversity like this. Did you support him with a purchase or two? That second hat would be perfect in your "about me" capsule on your web page...just sayin'...

  15. I love the thought of him raising the goats.....then weaving the hats from that yarn. Hooray for him.

  16. I don't know about that second one... I suppose a skier will buy it. I've seen some crazy hats on skiers!
