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 ...

We are grateful to Crescent Moon Ranch for putting Sizzin' Shak in the CABA/AWE 2023 auction. Our Shak crias are due beginning July 2024. They will be from tried and true pedigree combinations.

Ask a question
2023...Mellona still has an incredibly, uniformly fine fleece finer that some crias.

Uniform fineness and character, greatly increased crimps per inch, sound conformation, correct phenotype and calm temperament. Her dam, Pakoa, was an extremely fine true black.

14 m tui fleece and the curve on her next histogram increased to 63 (16 m / 4 sd)!

Mellona is a compact female and is co-owned with Sonshine Alpacas. We call her our "dryer lint" girl because of her fineness. She has a silly personality like her sire and an incredibly fine fleece...inherited from both parents. You'll be challenged to find a finer gray fleece with a high degree of curvature...lingering even at nine years old.
