Pygoras are a breed of goat that have been crossbred with Pygmy goats and white Angora goats. They were first crossbred in Oregon City, Oregon in the 1980’s. They are fiber goats, meaning they are bred for their wool. Pygora fiber is often used for knitting, crocheting, weaving, and tapestries. It is also commonly used in clothing textiles. One Pygora goat will produce roughly 6 ounces to 2 pounds of fiber per shearing.¬†Pygora goats have inherited the playfulness of the Pygmy goat, and the docile nature of the Angora goat. This makes them wonderful with kids.
