Sarafina's 2018 cria arrived on 10/13/18, and wow!...density is AMAZING! Medium fawn female out of 2017 AOA National Supreme Champion, Man in the Moon's Peruvian Ganymede. This combination of GANYMEDE and TWF Sarafina definitely works! We kind of knew it would since Sarafina's 2017 cria out of Ganymede's sire was astounding, too. Sarafina is just perfect, and she's been bred back to Ganymede -- Her current cria, Elara, will not be sold with Sarafina, and Sarafina will remain at MMFA until Elara is weaned.

If you are breeding for fiber that has amazing uniformity, consistency, lasting fineness, and is "the SAME all over!", this is an incredible place to start. Sarafina's fleece, and the unmatched consistency of Ganymede, has produced an amazing pair. UPDATE: Her Fall 2018 cria arrived on 10/13 -- and it's a beautiful medium fawn female! That makes 100% female production for Ganymede in 2018!

Sarafina has a uniform consistent crimp, a very soft handle, great staple length, very good density, and fineness across the staple. She had a textbook perfect birth, and displays excellent mothering instincts. Her size and conformation is just perfect for production, too. She's just a beautiful girl...Her genetics are also impressive. Sarafina's sire, TWF Peruvian Embosser (Odyssey, Godfather, Vengador, Royal Fawn) passed on his elite fleece, handle, staple and coverage. Her dam, TWF Peruvian Saffron (Felix, Accoyo Express) also passed on her dense, bright fleece.

Her service sire, Man in the Moon's Peruvian Ganymede, is an 11X Color Champ and 4X Judge's Choice winner in white, with amazing fleece and excellent conformation. The Judges have said: "He's the SAME...All Over!" See his web page for more info. He is SPECTACULAR!

Note: Special pricing available for multiple alpaca purchases.
