Bells' 2022 cria arrived on 10/2/22 and he's gorgeous!! Based on the outcome, we decided to rebreed Bells to Ganymede for an encore. Her new cria, Iapitus, has an extremely dense and curly fleece with those little rolls down the back of his neck! And he has great bone... well, doggonit, someone had different plans. Just after Ganymede left for his winter home in Texas, Bell’s decided she needed to breed again. The lucky boy is Rigel! Rigel should be able to pull color out of Bells as she has ple ...

Staple length!

Ask a question
Soleil is turning out quite nicely! Her fleece is fine with a very nice crimp — and her staple length is exemplary! She’s also quite a personable girl. We love it when an alpaca is equally valuable as a breeder and as an ambassador of the breed in our agritourism program.

In 2 of her 3 shows, the judge indicated that her fleece is equal to those above her but her placement was based on her relative size. She has a compact but sturdy frame and we have no doubt Soleil is built well for production!

Her sire, Snowmass Rock Solid, is a brown male who does not carry dilution. Lynn Edens said of her parent's breeding: “There’s a high likelihood of a fawn cria from this pairing and it should be a really nice one with good density, fineness and brightness as it develops, as these traits are coming from both sides. Rock Solid is putting a, ahem, rock-solid frame on his crias also – you can pick them out in the field by eye.”

Soleil's dam is our Bells of Piana, an exemplary Loro Piana daughter. Snowmass Loro Piana, named after the famous luxury textile designer, Loro Piana, was the first in the Snowmass program to produce a fleece finer than Vicuna! The Snowmass longtime goal of producing a high curvature fleece with fineness, brightness, and staple length was realized in this remarkable stud. He is quite literally the embodiment of everything the Snowmass program desired in White Huacaya, and is celebrated among their highest achievements in breeding for Ultra Royal Alpaca. His first histogram showed an extreme fineness sf 10.8 of microns, SD of 2.8, 0.3%>30 with a curvature of 67. Snowmass Loro Piana was also biopsied as a 21 month old white male showing a density of 115.25 follicles per SQ MM of skin!

Soleil will be ready to breed in Spring 2023 and she’ll come with a breeding. We’d suggest Man in the Moon's Rigel or Alpaca Palace Legend’s Rising Sun.
