Breeding Stock

Breeding Stock Pygoras are our premium animals. They are sold with PBA registration papers. These animals have been carefully selected for their fiber coverage and density along with conformation and personality. These are animals we are happy to have in our own breeding program.

See the spring 2014 kid list.

Spinners Flock

Spinners Flock Pygoras are animals who are not a part of our breeding program but produce enough fiber to pay for themselves for the year. Our wethers and retired breeding stock fall into this category. Other animals that may be in the spinners flock rather than breeding stock may have less fiber coverage or have minor conformational faults that we do not want to pass on. Some of the spinners flock animals may be registered and transfer of papers will be handled on a case by case basis.

Fiber

Purchase products from our Etsy shop...

We have teamed up and our products are available at several fiber festivals in the Ewe Hottie booth. If you are not able to attend any of the festivals and want some of our products, feel free to check our etsy store or contact us and we will be happy to give you our dehaired pygora cloud spinning fiber and pygora yarn prices.

Raw Pygora fiber has guard hair and needs to be dehaired before spinning. For this reason, we only sell dehaired fiber. The dehairing pocess is tedious and takes several hours by hand. We have our fiber commercially dehaired in large batches so you receive only the luxurious under coat.

There are 3 types of Pygora fiber. None is better than the others, they each have their own strengths.

Type A is similar to kid mohair, it has the longest staple at 4 to 6 inches and has the most luster.

Type B is unique to Pygora, it offers the best traits of Type A and C, staple length 3 to 4 inches with some luster and still finer than type A.

Type C is similar to cashmere, it is the shortest and most fine but also has the least luster.

Pygora fiber is great for several projects. It halos beautifully and is great for lacework or gossamer shawls. Pygora fiber adds wonderful luster to wool when blended or plied. We suggest blending with Bond, Cormo or Merino to add memory and retain the delicate luxurious feel of Pygora fiber. Yarns made of 100% pygora work well up to fingering weight. Heavier weights we suggest blending with wool or silk.

Pygoras are featured in the Fall 2008 edition of Spin-Off magazine under the Fiber Basics section. Check here to get a copy.
