WOW! You just gotta FEEL him!! Lingering fineness indeed! Will have an updated histogram shortly. If you're looking to add fineness and uniformity, then this is your guy! He's not been breed much but does has a couple of cria on the ground. We will have a couple the spring of 2020.

At his first show he placed first in a class of 14 shorn juvenile males, first place in juvie light fleece, AND his juvenile fleece took the Light Color Championship!!! The same cria fleece went on to take a coveted second place at the AFCNA Fleece show, the only Level IV fleece show in the country! He also took 3rd place in very tough competition (again, 14 in the class) in full fleece at the 2008 Empire Alpaca Extravaganza. His wins continued in 2009 with a first at the AOBA Conference fleece show as well as a first and Reserve Color Championship at the 2009 AFCNA fleece show! In 2010 is fleece took first, high scoring, AND Judge's Choice at the Empire Alpaca Fleece event in hand crafter's spin off. My oh my!

This male is from Pacific Crest Da Vinci, who is 3/4 Accoyo, a son of the incomparable El Nino, and out of a 3-time dark brown color champion dam! To top it off, Tali's dam was Tempestuous, a true black full Peruvian dam out of two true black Peruvian imports, making this boy a highly coveted beige covering black!

Check out his fleece stats: Age 2: AFD of 18.5: SD 3.8, CV 20.6 and an incredible %>30 of only 1!! But better yet at age 5 he's retaining fineness and uniformity with a histogram of AFD: 20.8; SD: 4 CV 19.3 & %>30 2.6! Plus at age 5 he sported a comfort factor of 97.4% and spin fineness of 20 microns, and at age 8 he still produced a 20 micron fleece! Updated histo. will be posted soon.
