Fox is 14, but he acts like he's 7. If you want better EPDs and uniform, fine, pigmented gray fleeces with no guard hair, here you go! This line produces lingering 13 to 19 micron pigmented gray fleeces...consistently. I combined Fox's first five fleeces 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 p ...

2018 EPDs: Top 25% for 3 traits: AFD, SF and MC. Christina is proving herself to be perhaps our very best production female. Her crias are extremely typey, with excellent density and fineness, high frequency crimp and conformationally correct with even temperaments. At the Alpacapalooza show (April 2011), despite getting the gate, she scored 90.5 out of 100 on a 20-point comprehensive evaluation done in person by AOBA judge Sharon Loner who asked why she didn't get a ribbon. Well, she did ea ...

Died in 2019 after we sold her, likely due to grazing on too much fresh pasture after being on dry lot..

Notable...13, 14 and 15 microns are by far the highest bars on her first histogram graph. And, her regrowth is staying the same.

Beautiful Radinka ("active one") is the fourth cria produced by Christina and Fox who just have a nack for producing high frequency crimp in their offspring and interestingly, it was even reflected in the EPDs before the we submitted our herd's data.

Besides being typey and adorable and full of personality, "Dinkers" fleece is extremely fine with very high frequency crimp. Looking at her first histogram there are about 48% of fibers between 11 and 15 microns. The SD is way too high though (common in grays) so she'll be bred to a herdsire with a very low SD. Still, her fleece has a wonderfully soft, supple and smooth handle.

Sept. 2016 I pulled a few fiber from her side and measured mostly twelve crimps per inch, with some at 10 cpi. The 10-12 cpi is consistent on every fiber, even primaries. Radinka's full sister, Kristiana, was in the 2015 EPD 1% club for MC (mean curvature)...before we sent in our herd's data.

Radinka's mostly Peruvian pedigree includes all of the best producers from our herd: Constantino, Trufflina, Andrajo, Christina, Lady Monaco. Her gray ancestory hails from Snowmass Peruivan Casanova, Snowmass Royal Bronze and best ever, Peruvian Bueno. She is unrelated to all other gray lines and all the Accoyos.
