Packaging the Mohair - Mohair series 4 of 7

After the washing and drying process the combing process removes the remaining vegetable matter and shorter and irregular sized fibres.  This transforms the mohair into a soft mohair "top".  Some of the mohair gets shipped off to buyers around the world while others move through the next process of spinning the yarns.  After the combing process the mohair that is due to be shipped off gets tied in bundles and packed in small bales.  This guy was busy tying the bundles and I was very impressed with the way he was handling that big "needle" in his hand.
