 Pygora Roving
Spinning Pygora is a sensual experience for the discriminating spinner. And Whistlekick Pygora fiber is something special. Mostly type-B fleeces, the fiber from Whistlekick goats combines the best qualities of all the Pygora fleece types: incredible softness, finer than type As, with curl/crimp and sheen.

Our goats produce fiber that is soft enough for baby clothes or to wear next to the skin, and is very warm. Pygora fiber dyes and felts easily. It can be used on its own or blended with fine wool. Staple lengths are long enough for ease of spinning. When knitted, the yarn blooms, but does not shed.

Availability
Whistlekick Pygora fiber is offered in a variety of colors: caramels, grey, browns, and shades of white with grey or caramel undertones. Each fleece has its own characteristics and charms.

We shear each spring and fall. If you are interested in purchasing some of our lovely, soft, lofty, luxurious Pygora roving, please contact us to find out availability, color, characteristics and price. 
 

 

A Word About Micron Count

Micron count indicates the fineness of a fiber. The smaller the number, the finer the fiber. As a comparison, cashmere has a micron count of less then 19µ (microns); it averages 16.5µ. Mohair is 23-31µ (kid mohair is around 26µ); it averages 34µ.

Above 31µ is considered coarse for fine fiber markets. Most adult Pygora fiber averages 26.7µ. Whistlekick Pygoras average 23.1µ for fiber fineness.

   
 
An oz. of Pygora spins up to about 125 yards of 2-ply laceweight yarn.
