We are so excited to be bringing these multi-generational Royal grade fiber genetics to the Eastern part of the United States. We feel Royal Bronze's lasting fineness (19 micron at age 7) makes him one of the premier colored studs in the country. With a history of adding color to the dam, Bronze presents an excellent opportunity to make crias darker and finer than their dams. Rock solid conformation, heavy bone, amazing leg coverage and a beautiful head make this stud a phenotypic rock star! ...

Ask a question
Fox is going on 17 and acts like he's 10. If you want better fineness EPDs and uniform, fine, pigmented gray fleeces with lots of crimps per inch and essentially no guard hair, he's the one!

This line produces lingering 13 to 19 micron pigmented gray fleeces...consistently.

Fox's first five fleeces were combined into one lot to make yarn at Heart and Soul and they commented on the uniformity of the lot.

Thanks to his sire, Royal Bronze, Fox is a master at overall uniformity, removing guard hair and fining down fleeces and adding more crimps per inch, good staple length, along with deep and vivid colors. He's a SILVER GRAY, SNOWMASS BRED, AOBA NATIONAL COMPOSITE CHAMPION and well proven to produce healthy, correct, typey progeny!

He is highly ranked for other traits too. He virtually removes all guard hair, including belly and bib. We attribute this amazing ability to his sire, Snowmass Royal Bronze, who is recognized by Julie Skinner as having recognized as having strong vicuna traits.

Density? He has royal fine daughters (see Dream Catcher) with 4+ pound tui blankets and SDs in the 3s.
Character? Gray daughter, Mellona, is 14.5 afd, 3.5 cv; 59 curve (not a typo) @ 21 mos. and then a 63 curve the next year!
Uniformity? Hardly anything to skirt out of his progeny's fleeces.

Offspring have very consistent, uniform and high yielding fleeces...Little to no skirting is needed for these big blanket fleeces.
Primary and secondary fibers are very similar, even across colors in the gray fleeces, most of which are pigmented silver grays.
In every offspring you will see higher frequency & amplitude crimp. ZERO to minimal guard matter the dam or color of the cria. You'll likely never see any guard hair on the belly of a Fox offspring.

Soundness and health, correct phenotype, conformation and movement. Even dispositions and very intelligent...and even a few silly personalities.

Certified Sorted graded Fox's 3 y.o. champion for "WORSTED applications".

No W, LF or MF crias and no blue eyes.
