Judge’s Bio

CGA welcomes Jayne Deardorff of Colville, Washington, as the judge for this year’s fleece and goat show.  Jayne has raised cashmere goats for over 15 years on a 200 acre farm which also produces registered Montadale sheep, cattle, hay and grain.  Jayne began processing wool on her farm in 1983, and her fiber processing plant includes a de-hairing machine for which she accepts small batch orders.  Her recent interest is in processing blended, felted wool pads for the orthopedic market.

Jayne is an adjunct teacher with Olds College in Alberta, Canada, teaching beginning spinning at their annual Fiber Week with a special emphasis on blending cashmere with other fibers in the hand spinning process.  Jayne was the judge for the Canadian National Cashmere Fleece Competition in 2014 and will also judge the 2016 Oregon Flock and Fiber Cashmere Goat Show the weekend before our CGA show.
