Hi Glenda! It's so good to hear from you again. I blush to admit, I don't even recall how long it has been since that conversation, but I DO remember talking (smile).
I have spun Pygmy undercoat ... but they are definitely not a real "fiber goat". Even in a cold climate like ours where Pygmies grow a very lush undercoat to see them through our cold winters, what I manage to comb out of them in the spring is usually well under one ounce per goat - and that is for the heavier "down" producers in my herd. It IS soft as a cloud though. I have occasionally blended Pygmy undercoat with other fibers and gotten the most wonderfully soft hand in the final yarn. Pygmy (and Pygora) down (undercoat) is so luxuriously soft and lofty - it is hard to beat this side of qiviut.
Glenda; Pygora OR Pygmy fiber is not a fleece I would recommend learning to spin on. You will just find it frustrating and difficult until you are more experienced and I would hate to discourage you!
Buy some inexpensive coopworth, columbia or other medium staple length wool rovings with lots of crimp. They are SO much easier to learn with - and once you have a handle on spinning, you can fairly quickly work your way up to finer and slipperier exotic fibers.
I've talked to lots of spinners who teach; they almost all recommend starting with Coopworth or similar (if you have money to spend, go for shetland), moving up to Corriedale, Rambouillet and Bluefaced Leicester (often referred to as BFL) and then to fine Merino and Cormo. Once you have mastered spoinning these sheep wools, you will be more than ready to branch out into llama, alpaca and yes! Pygora.
Btw, I keep a big stash of BFL ... it is one of my favorite spinning fibers and blends well with almost anything. It also takes dye well and makes up into any type of yarn you wish from fingerling (baby weight) to bulky without losing it's soft hand. It is also inexpensive and fairly easy to find.
Just a quick explanation as to the difficulty factor of spinning Pygora; Pygora (and any other purely or mostly undercoat spinning fiber) is often expensive due to either scarcity or because of labor intensive prep/processing ... or both. "Down" tends to have very short staple length and almost no crimp. Without those to hold your roving together, it can be quite a challenge to spin. Down also almost invariably also means de-hairing, which can take a long time to do by hand - or an additional expense to send out to be done.
You will find most exotic fibers blended with a fine wool or other longer stapled fiber. It not only stretches your supply of exotic, super soft Pygora (or qiviut, camel down, buffalo down, etc.), but it makes it easier to spin.
OK, as to your last question - all 3 Pygora "types"; A, B and C are fun to spin and each has its fanciers. Personally, I much prefer a type B that sort of "leans towards A". Ask a breeder - they will know what I mean. You will get the longer staple length in the outer coat - much of which can be spun, and you will get a lush propensity of undercoat. You will still need to de-hair, but there will be less dehairing necessary than a Type C. C's have wonderful cashmere-quality down which lots of people adore, but your harvest will be much smaller. LOTS to learn! There is loads of information about Pygoras online. Take your time, learn all you can, and feel free to ask me any questions that come up.
Get on with your rehab - hope it is going well - and dream on. Start spinning and practicing so that by the time you have your own Pygoras, you'll be all set to spin that lusious fleece!
