|Pygora goats are a specialty goat with multiple uses. Pygora goats are growing in popularity for their unique fiber and friendly dispositions. Pygora goats are great for the small farm. They are great with kids, produce wonderful hand spinning fiber, and are wonderful brush eaters. They are fun loving and always curious.
They originated from the crossing of a registered NPGA (National Pygmy Goat Association) Pygmy goat and a registered AAGBA (American Angora Goat Breeders Association) White Angora goat. The angora goat brings in the white mohair fiber and the Pygmy brings in the color and Cashmere type fiber.
Pygora fleeces are categorized into three types: Type A is most like mohair, long, lustrous ringlets; Type C is most like cashmere, shorter staple and creamier handle; and Type B which is a very unique combination of the two other types. Type B has a medium staple length, retains some of the lustre of Type A, but adds the creaminess of Type C. Goats can also be typed as combinations, such as having Type AB fleece, which would mean it is a Type B, but has more lustre and length than a true Type B.
