CIS#: 1667

Sire: Snowmass Satin King

(Male, white)

Date of Birth: Oct 13, 2008 Dam: Snowmass Quechua’s Mirage

Well, how do you start off your production sale . . .For Snowmass Alpacas, it had better be a ready-to-roll stud male that can set not only a good trend for the rest of the sale, but also a stud male that represents the ideals of our breeding program. What other male would we have named “TREND SETTER?” Snowmass Trend Setter has some of our most unique and elite White breeding genetics lined up one after the other and exhibits true genetic strength along with quality from head to toe. Be sure to look at him (pictured) as a Juvenile, where you can see the expression of gorgeous bright long stapled fleece he has carried from birth. Trend Setter has kept all the best of brightness and fineness in his fleece . . . the trend is still set with this incredible young male. If you are looking to set some trends in your breeding program with Royal Fineness, Density, Brightness and overall strong frame exhibiting quality through and through, Trend Setter is the Stud male to help SET this TREND in your herd!

Merino Grade (high fashion knit wear) This is the fleece that has the balance of being fine but has a deeper amplitude in crimp and tends to form staples or bundles. The Merino crimp is more dramatic to look at than the vicuna /cashmere grade. This is the fleece that new judges and aspiring judges have learned to love and taught by judges mostly from Merino wool backgrounds to be measured as the highest most evolved type of fleece so you can show well with this type. This fleece is a beautiful fleece and does have a greater BLING factor. It does have wonderful density and can be selectively bred to hold a finer micron. Snowmass has been selectively breeding this grade to remain fine as alpaca ages however it does not remain as fine as the vicuna grade. When you put greater selective pressures for finer micron you end up with the vicuna grade! So we know there is a great difference in these 2 grades.

CIS#: 1684

Date of Birth: Sep 8, 2004

Sire: Snowmass Royal Rose

Dam: Snowmass Victorian Dream

Snowmass Victorian Rose represents the finest of Snowmass Royal Rose X Peruvian Chaccu X Accoyo Victor genetics. LOOK at her histogram records that reflect this. We sold her Dam, Snowmass Victorian Dream, in an earlier Making of Champions sale, as we happily retained, Snowmass Victorian Rose. Snowmass Victorian Rose has since produced three outstanding daughters, one we sold, and the two remaining in our herd allowing us to now offer Snowmass Victorian Rose this 2011. This year we were very excited to have bred her to Snowmass Conopa for the first time. We are confident that this will be one of her finest crias to date. When we witnessed what Conopa produced his first year, we lined up as many fawn females as we could not related to him in our herd and clearly Snowmass Victorian Rose was one of those MUSTS to cross with Conopa. His progeny are absolutely the finest and densest well advanced color fleece lines we could ask for. Victorian Rose has one of the most consistent fawn fleeces we have in production at Snowmass. We are confident that this cria she carries will be one for the record book and most certainly for your show string!!! Snowmass Victorian Rose was with Snowmass Conopa XXX from 9/8/2010 to 11/19/2010. Histograms Shearing 1 2 3 4 5 6

CIS#: 1594

Sire: Snowmass Porteus

(Female, White)

Date of Birth: Aug 23, 2008 Dam: Snowmass Heidi Love XX

Snowmass Silky Love is from the LOVE line, via her Dam, Snowmass Heidi Love. Heidi Love carries many incredible White genetics along with some of our best color, which directed us to breed her to our Color XXXtreme Son, Snowmass Porteus, which produced a bright and extremely silky lovely white fleeced cria, “Snowmass Silky Love.” Silky Love’s first fleece is much like Porteus’ which is like fine SILK, thus her name. Tragically, Porteus died in 2010, which is a great loss to the alpaca breeding world. His offspring are few and treasured. We were not sure which way to go with Silky Love in terms of breeding her to white or color. With the loss of Porteus, we really wanted to pull color like his. We knew we had to breed her to the best of our darker color to pull color so we chose to breed her to our lead Champion Matrix Son, “Snowmass Matrix Majesty.” Matrix Majesty’s first cria born 2010 have been OUT OF THIS WORLD. You will see many of them in the Snowmass Show string 2011. From White to Black and every color in between, his cria are breathtaking in looks, density, fineness,and complete consistency of wool from head to toe. Matrix Majesty has really just begun his breeding career, therefore we have few available and very few bred to him so don’t let this Silky Love get away! Snowmass Silky Love was with Snowmass Matrix Majesty from 6/3/2010 to 7/5/2010. Histograms Shearing AFD SD CV %>30 CURV SPIN Fineness 1 19.3 4.0 20.5 0.7 41.3 18.7 2 17.9 3.8 21.0 0.7 51.8 17.4

Date of Birth: 08/18/08

Breeding: Snowmass Elite Legend

Sire: Snowmass Legacy Gold Dam: Snowmass Olympic Sunrise Due Date: 08/21/2011 TGF Olympia Gold is a special female and represents exactly what the Making of Champions Sale is all about. A culmination of years of careful breeding of the potent, and proven genetics that consistently advances the progeny of the future. We purchased Olympia Gold’s dam, Snowmass Olympic Gold ( a Snowmass XXXtreme Daughter) at the 2006 MOC Sale and have not been disappointed. Her first cria, TGF Olympic Sky (full sister to Olympia Gold), was sold to Gem State Alpacas at the 2007 AOBA National Sale. Sky went on to win the Reserve Championship at GWAS, one of the largest and most competitive shows in the country, for her new owners. TGF Olympia Gold comes straight out of our 2009/10 Show String. It was a very competitive year for us and Olympia Gold played an integral part in helping TGF win the 2010 Mid-sized Futurity Breeder of the Year. The decision to offer her in the MOC sale was very difficult for us and to say that we have been “waffling” a bit would be an understatement. Lucky for us, Gold’s dam, Olympic Sunrise delivered her third female this year. Olympic Splendor is another Legacy Gold daughter and full sister to Olympia Gold. This makes us feel a bit better about letting her go. Olympia Gold is bred to Snowmass Elite Legend, the 2010 Herd Sire of the Year. Elite Legend is held dear amongst our partners, Snowmass and Cas-Cad Nac and as such, he is closed to outside breedings. Any of his offspring, in utero or otherwise, are rare. Olympia Gold represents great opportunity to acquire this powerful combination of genetics. FMI contact Ryen or Ursuaa @ Tripping Gnome Farm Alpacas.; 207.415.9381.

So, we present the best MATRIX DAUGHTER of the year. Snowmass Matrix Amber, who won the FUTURITY 2010 Color Champion Female over all our best entries. She is being presented for sale to follow along with the Matrix procession of advanced alpaca genetics. Snowmass Matrix Amber is the Queen of Matrix, and the Queen of our Amber lines. She is truly one of the most magnificent alpacas which was also the sentiment of the judges that had the opportunity to see her at the 2010 FUTURITY and INTERNATIONAL shows. She very gracefully took First & Champion with very breathtaking comments from the judges, who expressed their excitement of how far the world has advanced in the Alpaca Industry as they judge alpacas such as Snowmass Matrix Amber. She has a GORGEOUS and exciting young stud male cria at side and with the breeding to Conopa, you will have the VERY BEST and the ultimate MATRIX daughter who rivals any in the Snowmass breeding program.

Vicuna Cashmere Grade (high fashion ROYAL knit wear) • Extreme fineness 13-18 Very high curve 40-60’s, • The staple length after 1st year averages 3 to 4 inches • Has the highest frequency of crimp, very low amplitude of crimp. Fiber grows evenly with secondary fibers coming in later than other fleece types. Primary fiber is more evident at birth and through 6 months of age until secondary fiber develops. REALITY IN THE SHOW RING: These fleece types don’t show as well first year as juveniles. Once they come into their second and third fleeces they really can compete as they are superior in maintaining their fineness and the density is also better understood. These types do not have bold crimp (that which can be seen) or deep amplitude. Most do not understand the greatest value in this fleece is its high curvature and high frequency of crimp which goes in hand with extreme fine micron which gives it a spider web affect and makes it superior in spin. This is what makes this fiber able to produce the finest and softest wearing garments over all. It does not have the BLING factor so the judges don’t seem to appreciate it and or like it as well as the next tier of crimp (Merino) which is higher in amplitude and higher in micron. Most breeders learning the trade through shows and judges lose interest in this most valued fleece type for not having the BLING factor. However in textile product shows this type of fleece clearly produces the finest garments. Those of us who choose to breed this Royal Grade of alpaca as Snowmass does, must get involved with Royal product line development to create a better value and understanding of this type of alpaca and fleece, as it is NOT understood or appreciated in the show ring to date. We also should NOT be making the mistake of breeding our Royal grade alpacas to alpacas that are higher in micron in order to achieve greater density unless you do not want to be breeding for this type of textile grade.

Lot #8 Snowmass ROYAL Bronze ARI#: 836746

CIS#: 1488

Sire: Snowmass Andean Bronze

(Male, Light Brown)

Date of Birth: Jun 23, 2002 Dam: 6440 6Peruvian Rosa Royal

This may be the hardest stud male to ever let go of. There has been no other in our thirty years of breeding that has taken our herd to the highest levels of fineness. The term Royal applies here, which in alpaca means fiber under the 20 microns and is an extremely fine measurement of overall fleece grade. It has been Snowmass Alpacas’ mission to have our herd to be consistently finer and finer every year so that we can produce enough royal fiber to attract the interest of any and all textile groups. We have achieved this goal with the help of this Royal Stud, “ROYAL BRONZE.” His lineage is as fine in grade and consistency, which supports his genetic influence. His Sire, Snowmass Andean Bronze, and Grandsire, Snowmass Andean Gold, are replicas of the same fineness, stature and consistency, overall fine qualities we look for in alpaca, so it’s a strong three generation Paternal line of ROYAL.This stud gives meaning to the use of the term ROYAL. Look closely at the list of his progeny, as they are all testimony to the grandness of this truly ROYAL stud. You cannot find studs like these everyday. They are those few one-ina-million and we are very nervous to be letting him out of our breeding program. We do have a strong hold of his progeny to carry us forward and more importantly, we know the importance of increasing more of these ROYAL FINE alpacas in the alpaca industry to meet the growing demands of Royal grade alpaca fiber. This is a magnificent opportunity for all breeders (large or small) to make a great impression in taking leadership in this industry. We are very excited to see who will take him home! Snowmass Royal Bronze is a poster stud representative of the Pre-Incan alpaca before hybridization: an alpaca of pure vicuna descent and advanced fiber production. We have done preliminary testing with Royal Bronze and he has proven to date that he does not posses any hybrid markers in his DNA. The preliminary testing for purity has eliminated 80% of the alpaca population tested so far from being pure alpacas, (those with no Llama DNA). The importance of this testing at this stage is to preserve the remaining known pure alpaca species, which is essential to keeping this breed from becoming extinct. The importance of how a pure alpaca fits into the breeding programs remain to be seen, unless they can prove to have the genetic qualities that will enhance the qualities the Industry reveres. We know the textile markets do and the fiber testing science indicated we should, but we have yet to appreciate the qualities of this type of fleece overall, as in many cases it is prejudiced for not being dense (lacks weight and bold crimp). It is a hard fleece to judge, but the science in testing is beyond refute in establishing this fleece type to be extremely valuable. When fineness gets this consistent in an alpaca, it explodes over the entire body which includes a most astounding wool production even to the top of the head. Royal Bronze has FIBER and FINENESS every where. He is a vicuna fine fleece producing machine. He has very little to no fibers over 30 even at 6 years of age. He still is producing Royal Grade fiber -- and volumes of it. He is one in a million in this respect and he is producing it over and over and even in Black. He has no known Black genetics in his registered pedigree, but in fact he is producing black cria out of fawns who also have no known black genetics (see his Black son Snowmass Royal Knight). In our breeding program, fineness reigns as a most significant element, therefore studs like these are more valuable than gold.

CIS#: 1082

Sire: Snowmass Invincible

(Female, Beige)

Date of Birth: Aug 27, 2004 Dam: Snowmass Ambrosia

Snowmass Ambrosian Sky is one of our reserve Snowmass Invincible daughters, who also brings in the Royal Vicuna line stemming from 6Peruvian Cambria. We selected this gorgeous line of alpacas from many in Peru specifically to breed for Royal fine micron and high curvature; the vicuna equivalent in advanced fleeces for Royal grade textiles. This very line was the golden key to do just this for our herd. You can see the results in Ambrosian Sky’s yearly histograms, which show low AFD and very high sustained curvature. Her cria remarkably have all been the most exceptional fleeced and upstanding cria from this line. Even though her Dam line is colored, the strength of her paternal lineage, the famous Maree “LOVE” line, (Dam of her sire, Snowmass Invincible and brother to Snowmass Quechua) have been the dominating elements in her production. Her first son, Snowmass Royal Vision, was sold to a European Syndicate and is leading white herdsire for this most astute breeding program. Her second son has been sold to an East Coast breeder, and her third son we are offering in this year’s 2011 sale as well. He is one of the most exciting yet, besides the young male she has at side -- ready to rock the 2011 shows. The production of this female has been more predictable in excellence than we could ever ask for. She has produced all males but every one has been STUD quality. The problem is we cannot use her sons as they are all related to our female lines and this is why we sell them and they sell as fast as we list them. This year, we decided we wanted to get color in this exceptional fleece line and the Royal line of color is no other than Royal Bronze. Her male cria at side is one of our first and most remarkable Royal Trademark offspring yet and one for the 2011 show string. We can promise Ambrosian Sky is a predictable, proven and strong production Dam that has produced the highest quality of cria year after year. She will more than likely, as the odds are predicting, have a female once we sell her but from this female you are as blessed to have a male cria! Snowmass Ambrosian Sky was with Snowmass Royal Bronze from 9/14/2010 to 9/26/2010.

Date of Birth: May 16, 2009 Dam: Snowmass Brianna

As much as we like to hold on to our very best, we must add a Best Man daughter to our sale to truly get attention. So here is one of our brightest young hopefuls . . . “Snowmass Illuminati.” We named this one at birth, as she had a fleece on her that was close to 3 inches long, with tight curly bright ringlets. When she dried, it was like looking into Silk, bright and so luminous and so the name Illuminati came. We treasure all of our alpacas with these types of fleece and have so few of them we really don’t like to let them go. Especially when their histogram comes back with an AFD of 15.6 -- her curve is high for a silky at 53.5. We have her full brother, born this year, who is close to identical to Illuminati, so we know we can reproduce this. Best Man is the only stud we have that hands down produces these luminous, long stapled fleeces like a stamp. So the genetics are powerful for this type of SILKY fleece which we know is a revolution to “Alpaca.” She is one of our first silkies to be bred to our Champion herdsire Snowmass Check Mate! This will be one of the first crias from this powerhouse of genetic combinations! These truly are not easy to let go of!!!

This is one of our all time FAVORITE females, not to mention one of the most handsome magnificent stand-out females in the Snowmass Herd and a direct Quechua daughter. Snowmass Highland Bells is truly one well-LOVED and TREASURED Grand Dam and a highlight to our sale. They don’t get much better than this. Highland Bells has produced a line of bright and beautiful progeny. Her last we lost tragically at no fault of the dam, a most beautiful Matrix female cria. Her fleece even at three days of life was incredible. We knew she was extremely special and were very excited, so this was a terrible loss for us and extremely hard for Highland Bells. She is a devoted and very attentive Dam which made it even harder for us.

(Male, White)

Date of Birth: Feb 5, 2005

Sire: Snowmass Quechua

Dam: 6225 6Peruvian Casa Blanca

Snowmass Chateau is indeed a Snowmass “Quechua” son, and a well kept secret until we decided to take him to show at the AOBA World Conference. He had never been shown before, so this was his debut. He gracefully walked away with the Grand Champion White Male . . . and this was over all the Quechua sons we brought along! He has also gracefully and respectfully been awarded only First or Champion in all the fleece shows he was entered in. (See show listing). He has a strong and great frame alongside a gorgeous spring-loaded bright crimp that has the BLING factor, very exciting to look at. Most importantly, his fleece remains very “fine” and retains extraordinary brightness and handle. His progeny are showing the same amazing consistently dense fine and high curvature fleeces across a broad range of color. He is also producing an exceptional staple length in hand with high curve which is very unique and desirable! Chateau’s Dam, 6225 6Peruvian Casa Blanca, as in many of our lead breeding studs, is extremely important in the genetic elements that are attributed to Chateau. A great example is his maternal Brother Snowmass Sub Zero who carries the same extreme low CV. We attribute this much to the Dam; 6225 6Peruvian Casa Blanca, and added with Quechua = one of our best fleeced Quechua sons over all. Snowmass Chateau’s first cria born are extremely exciting and are also ready for their debut in this year’s 2011 show season. Snowmass Chateau is a hard one for Snowmass and Quechua Enterprises to release, but we promised we would provide a world class, high level advanced Quechua Son in par with Snowmass Matrix and some valued Championships behind him for sale in our MOC 2011 sale. “ SNOWMASS CHATEAU” Fits this every criteria, so don’t hesitate to raise your hand and take this magnificent stud straight to your herd.

Snowmass Matrix Grace is RARE beauty in both her amazing lineage which reads like Royal Gold with Sires starting with the likes of Snowmass Matrix, and continuing with Snowmass Royal Challenger, Snowmass Royal Rose, Snowmass Legacy Gold, Snowmass Quechua, Accoyo Elite, Hemingway, Legacy . . . The way these are lined up is very important. You have two major Grand Dams back to back with Snowmass Legacy Lass and Snowmass Golden Lace who have left a long heritage of royal progeny, as have the rest of the alpacas in this lineage. Snowmass Matrix Grace is one of the best examples of our hard work in breeding selection, and truly a sacrifice to be releasing from our program. The Snowmass herd has evolved in its thirty years to the point where our herd is very consistent in its excellence and so what we have to represent with each year gets better and better. We have a large herd in comparison to the average breeding herd in the U.S., but a very very small herd in perspective to a commercial herd that wants to be in line with textile companies looking for quantity of consistent quality fiber bales. This makes it hard to sell our best stock, but at the same time this is what makes our sale one of the best in consistency of quality. Her Dam sold in 2010 as Lot #20 Snowmass Royal Grace $31,500 to Sunset Hills Farm. Her sire: MATRIX . . . a known WORLD RECORD to Double O Good, and those in her pedigree are in the same record figures, just to help give a perspective of this magnificent female’s value! Snowmass Matrix Grace was with Snowmass Messiah’s Moon River from 6/8/2010 to 7/29/2010 with a negative ultrasound on 7/29/2010 and then covered Snowmass Conopa XXX from 7/29/2010 to 8/23/2010.

Snowmass Thrill Seeker has truly one of the most exquisite fleeces and a lineage to carry this straight into your herd and to bring the same advancements we have witnessed in both white or color. His Sire is our Champion Fawn Stud, Snowmass Conopa, and is, simply speaking, one in a million! Snowmass Conopa’s Sire is Snowmass Infinity, son of Accoyo Snowmaster. This Dam Lineage brings in Sollocota and Accoyo Legacy. His pedigree when you look at it, is truly astounding! On the Maternal side, Snowmass Thrill Seeker’s Dam is one of our top Snowmass Invincible daughters, Snowmass Ambrosian Sky (see Lot#9). She brings in our finest Peruvian Import Dam lines via 6Peruvian Cambria, which is responsible for the finest color genetics in the Snowmass Alpacas herd. Thrill Seeker could stand up against the best of the white males in our herd but he has the added power of color behind him, as well, which makes him the perfect dual stud.

Snowmass Accoyo Mistress is not one we let go of lightly. This is Snowmass Chateau’s Dam (Lot#14)! I have taken her on and off the production sale list now for two months preparing for this sale, simply because she has produced some of our leading breeding stock. Accoyo Mistress was bred to Snowmass Elite Legend and when he left for the East Coast, she then went into a cover field with Snowmass Divine Inspiration. For this reason, with either stud we know the quality this cria will carry and very much would like to have it born in our ownership. When it comes to advanced Dams like Snowmass Accoyo Mistress, they are truly hard to find and valued. As far as we are concerned, you can never have too many of this quality of alpaca. We truly need many, many more of these types of whites in the alpaca industry to truly supply the world with high-end alpaca fashion. The world alpaca industry is moving forward quickly with Elite alpaca genetics and we are seeing more advanced fleeces, which is very exciting. There are still few that stand to be as valued as producers as Accoyo Mistress, so please pay close attention and don’t miss out on this magnificent Dam bred to our leading white Quechua Sons.

Snowmass Petite Syrah is one of the grandest Dams of color in our herd and you will see for yourself with the cria at side just what importance she carries to improving the breed. One of her sons, Snowmass Bronze Sculptor, was sold at the Pucara Premium sale in 2010 and is now on his way to new owners in Switzerland. We have a treasure trove of Petite Syrah cria in our herd and so now it is time we share her with you for your herd. We had a great selection of choices to breed her to, as she has proven to produce our best no matter who she is bred with. Should we choose a Quechua Son or should we breed her back to the one stud we think created her best cria in BLACK, Snowmass Royal Bronze? We know a Quechua Son would be truly awesome, so it was a very hard choice. We decided to breed her to Snowmass Royal Bronze in hopes of recreating another Royal Malaika or Bronze Sculptor, two of our favorites beside the one magnificent 2010 cria she has at side. Then we covered her with the one Quechua son who has produced some of our 2010 leading color cria from colored Dams: Snowmass Quechua’s Innovation. One thing you can be sure of is regardless of color, any and all cria from this Grand Dam have been nothing short of spectacular! She has an exceptional Matrix Majesty’s cria at side -one of his first -- and he is absolutely gorgeous. He may just sell at side . . . or not . . . you will have to come to the sale and find out for sure. Snowmass Petite Syrah was exposed with Snowmass Royal Bronze from 10/8/2010 to 10/18/2010 with hand breeding and in cover field with Snowmass Histograms Quechua’s Innovation from 10/22/2010 to 11/8/2010 (no breedings witnessed).

This year, more any other year, we are offering our prime reserve females which includes our small and treasured reserve of our finest Quechua daughters to present at this years Genetic Advancement Sale. Tragically, we lost Snowmass Quechua April 2006, the year he won herdsire of the year for the second year in a row via his offspring. Since then, we have sold very few of his direct offspring. The reserve of his male offspring are held within Quechua Enterprises and one is owned in partnership: Snowmass Elite Legend, with Cas-Cad-Nac & Tripping Gnome Farm. There is one Quechua son in Canada, and one in New Zealand and two sons born from females bred to him sold via our Making of Champion sales. Snowmass Celestial Star is, as her name implies, one of those rare females you want to reproduce many just like her for your herd. She has a son, Snowmass Celestial Mirage, who we are just getting started in our breeding program and we have her gorgeous daughter to replace her. She was first bred to Snowmass Elite Legend but he then left for the East Coast, so she was covered and bred to Alteso of PVA, an Elite Maximus son we purchased from David & Nancy TenHulzen. Another tragic loss for us this 2010 was when Alteso was killed by our first mountain lion attack on our ranch. So Celestial Star, by many interesting sets of circumstances, lives up to her name. The stars she represents are both earthly and celestial and thereby means more to us than ever. Snowmass Celestial Star placed first in the White Yearling class at the 2008 International Alpaca Odyssey. Snowmass Celestial Star was with Snowmass Elite Legend from 5/26/2010 to 6/8/2010 and Alteso of PVA from 8/11/201 to 9/14/2010. Histograms Shearing 1 2 3 4 5

White Fiber White alpacas have had a head start in breeding selection over color. This is due to white fiber’s greater value in commercial production because it is easily dyed. Much of the international market for breeding alpacas is based on the prospect of large, white, commercial herds. This is found in the international market of white merino wool which rose to the top due to its fineness, color clarity, and consistency. Mohair (produced from white Angora goats) also has a strong commercial market. However, it cannot compete as widely, due to its hair-like properties and limitation in textile values. White alpaca is gaining greater and greater interest and moving forward steadily into the white fiber commercial market. Fine color alpaca is also in the running, but for the prospects of dyeing and ease of breeding selection, white is, without a doubt, the leader in commercial alpaca.

What have we put in our mighty Lot #22 position? This year, it’s a highly revered female: “Snowmass Silky Sunshine.” This Grand Dam is as treasured as they come in our herd. She is truly the ultimate female alpaca in every way. She reminds us of the one and only female we found in Peru that stood above every stud we looked at and was purchased by us as our number one lottery position that was “5Peruvian Hallmark”. The looks and the fleece just are at the top with this gal and so without question is “Snowmass Silky Sunshine.” She really should be a stud, but better yet, she produces them. Only a handful of Quechua daughters exist in this world like his sons, and we cannot emphasize the importance of them to our breeding success and future success of our program. These alpacas hold the lead genetics in truly advancing the world’s market for alpaca. We are excited to have her go to another home in the sense that we are truly spreading our seeds. We don’t let go of her without reserving some of her genetics, which we have in her fawn daughter “Snowmass Silky Celebration” for our color program, and a white son “Snowmass Man in Silk” sired by Snowmass Summit. We are also (with some hesitation) offering her most MAGNIFICENT son “Snowmass Royal Distinction” as one of our highlighted Studs for sale (see Lot#23). He sells just behind his Dam, which we planned to help enlighten the attention of the audience and to delight all breeders world-wide! We went back and forth as to who do we put first. As the matriarch of this line, we said “ladies first,” so she takes Lot 22 and her mighty son Lot 23. Snowmass Silky Sunshine is truly remarkable and bred to one of the most remarkable colored studs in our herd, Snowmass Matrix Majesty. This is a line breed on Quechua which we have been very successful with and this will be one of the most powerful and truly Majestic of all time!

His Dam is no less than our #1 Quechua/Accoyo Pacabell daughters, Snowmass Silky Sunshine, offered in our regal Lot #22 position. These are some of the most exciting offerings for 2011!!! There is no better looking stud than Snowmass Royal Distinction. He was born standing proud with curly Merino fiber from head to toe. He has one of the densest Dark Fawn fleeced males on farm with great distinction in bundling and brilliant Merino bold crimp. This stud has fleece over his entire body and leads the Royal Challanger fleece weight production with 5.5 lbs of sorted prime fleece. The skirted high grade seconds weighed in at 4.3 lb. We typically do not weigh fleeces as know we range at an even keel with 3.5 to 4.5 lbs prime skirted fleece weight over the herd, however Royal Distinction’s fleece was out of the ordinary and so we weighed it with great enthusiasm. He is the perfect stud to bring a balance of high, fine yield of fleece on a strong, large frame. Snowmass Royal Distinction has not lost a stitch of his looks and carries a unique and valued inheritance. This male will bring you to new dimensions in putting both Elite fiber and frame into your herd.

CRIMP There is no question that curvature and crimp are related. The looser the crimp, the lower the curvature, the tighter the crimp the higher the curvature, the higher the curvature, the higher number of crimps per inch. The one correlation we have seen in our higher curvature and crimped fleeces is that they are found to grow a shorter staple after their first shearing. The same goes for Merino wool, which is the highest in curvature. In hand, with high curvature fleeces, we have also noted that most alpaca, like Vicuùa and Merino fleeces with high curvature, produce a markedly shorter staple length after their first clip, and in all subsequent years’ growth. Higher curvature fleeces also have a slightly harsher handling fiber. This has much to do with both scale height as well as high frequency of crimp, where the edge of the fiber is more easily felt against the skin. This all brings a new dimension and perspective to the importance of crimp question. Is high curvature and high profile crimp important? In terms of processing for spinning knitwear, the answer is YES! In terms of bright sheen, soft silky handle and longer staple the answer is NO. Most importantly, both crimp styles are used if they are fine enough to produce garments of Royal Grade alpaca. The main determining factor for Royal Grade is LOW MICRON and has nothing to do with style of crimp. The amount of Royal Grade alpaca available to mills is so low that they bulk all styles together, just to get enough to process a Royal Grade production line of textiles. As breeders produce more volume of fine alpaca fiber, there will be a trend to diversify and experiment with which fibers produce what types of Royal Garments. For example, it is also a known fact that high crimped/ curvature fleeces are easier to commercially card and spin, especially in the woolen mills. This and fineness is why Merino wool is one of the most sought-after fibers. In tight knit wear, higher curvature is very important over length and or brightness. The other very important factor many breeders are looking at very closely is consistency of fineness and consistency in curvature, so all fibers process evenly for a tighter, softer and long-lasting garment.

Snowmass Incan Myst is a gorgeous bay black female who has been instrumental in producing our lead color genetic lines. Snowmass Rock Star is one of the finest True Blacks we have ever produced and this was her son, sired by Snowmass Royal Bronze. Michelle Ing, who is without question one of the most brilliant camelid vets in the U.S. but also has one of the finest collections of Black alpacas in the world, purchased Rock Star from us back in 2009. He is ready to breed and we are excited to use our reserved breedings to him. We loved this male so much we bred Incan Myst back to Royal Bronze in hopes of producing another Rock Star male or female. I did not realize that she was selected to our sale this year and I am really tempted to pull her and keep her for ourselves. We don’t have a large black program and so we have to stick to our guns and offer those we have to make this a truly colorful sale. We bred Incan Myst to Snowmass Matrix in 2007 with the hopes of producing a Black Matrix son. When the cria was born and he was beige we were very disappointed but not for long, as he came into one of the best light colored fleeces we had in his age group. The way we select our show string is by going through the groups of boys without knowing their lineage until we look them up. Mystic, her beige Matrix Son, was at the top of our list above many we have. We were very surprised to see he came from Incan Myst -- a black. He is one of our lead contenders of Matrix sons and this year, 2010, he was put on our show string and took a second place at the IAO and he is right in line to be used over our unrelated colored females. He has all of Incan Myst progeny are testament to her outstanding production. If you are a lover of fine, extraordinary dark color alpacas this next cria she is carrying will NOT disappoint you!!

Snowmass Sub Zero is one in a million in terms of his fleece and the propensity of his genetics to produce fineness and uniformity. His histogram @ 5 yrs 19.4, 3.3, 17.1, .6, 56.7, 18). His offspring exhibit, superbly bright, fine and uniform fleeces that are so important to fine fabric production. Surprise’s dam is Snowmass Accoyo Sunrise. She is one of the best foundation females in our herd. We purchased Sunrise at the first Making of Champions sale and without a doubt; she has become one of most important females in our program. She is a powerful cross of Accoyo and Sollocota genetics with a bright, dense fleece coupled with lingering fineness. A large part of our success can be traced back to purchasing Accoyo Sunrise from Julie and Don. Every one of Accoyo Sunrise’s cria, of which Surprise is the third female in a row, have been excellent in every way and have been integral parts of our show strings over the years. Most notably is TGF Morning Bells- winner of multiple Color Championships (Halter & Fleece) and two- time winner of the coveted Judges’ Choice Award. Rest assured you are bidding on one of our best white females with a deep pedigree ready to advance your herd just as her dam did ours. TGF Surprise sells with all our support, guarantees and at the time of this writing she is being bred to CCNF Archangel - our exceptional white Herd Sire that produced the 2010 White Male Futurity Champion TKO King of the Ladies.

What Makes An Elite Alpaca? The key questions we have been asking ourselves are: What are the differences in our alpacas compared to those bred in Ancient South America, and just what defines an elite alpaca today? The main incentive for all alpaca breeders is that vicu単a wool still sells for $400 to $600 per kilogram, which is 20 to 30 times the price of alpaca wool. The diversities found in modern alpacas are the result of long term cross-breeding. The wide range of fiber qualities that exist within modern alpaca herds make it very difficult to compile large lots of under 20 micron handling fiber for specialized commercial production. The differences within fiber types are not just in fineness but other fiber characteristics as well; Crimp, architecture of the crimp, scale height on the fiber itself (which creates variable degrees of luster and hand), fiber length, degree of wool fibers (produced by secondary follicles) to more protective medulated fibers (produced by Primary follicles), and concentration of these fibers within the fleeces themselves are also factors.

A league of CHAMPIONS lives within this GOLDEN BOY. Like his sisters we offer this 2011, he has the same GOLDEN lineages of excellence but in a ready-to-breed young stud. We have kept Matrix Gold in order to keep these lineages infused into our herd. He is one on the top of our list and is a dead ringer for his brother Snowmass Matrix Elite. They could be twins. We elected to take his brother to show over GOLD and today we would change our minds as Matrix Gold has developed into a much stronger-framed stud with the same intensely fine dense MATRIX fleece. Matrix Gold has the added lineages of our all-time finest color lines from the Crimson line. We have way too few alpacas in our herd that are not related to Snowmass Matrix Gold to merit keeping him. We are not at all against line breeding and we have been very successful at selective, well-planned line breeding, however you come to a place in your program where you find you have reached your highest potential and you are now rich in the genetics you are treasuring. So, it’s time to share the gold. You have a key to the finest fleece genetics to bring great success to your herd in Snowmass Matrix GOLD. So this year, it’s time for you to bring home the GOLD.

Here’s your chance to acquire a wonderful piece of Snowmass Matrix for your breeding program. Snowmass Matrix Snow Angel has so much going for her, not just because she is a treasured Matrix daughter, but because her Dam, Snowmass Snowccoya, is so important in her excellence. This maternal line brings in many significantly influential genetics,via Snowmass Accoyo Mistress, Snowmass Accoyocusani, Augusto, Snowmaster, Snowmass Lenoxand . . . and more. This combination (both top and bottom) equates to a very powerful pedigree. Snow Angel is a lovely female in all respects and carries a beautifully bright, fine dense fleece to match. The next question was who to breed her to, which is a question we have for many of our alpacas that we have loaded up with five generations plus of all our top lineages. It’s very difficult for us to find a stud that is not related in some area of their pedigree. However, we have one very powerful Elite Stud, Snowmass Conopa, that is unrelated. We have saved him for our Matrix daughters, and so Matrix Snow Angel is now bred to Snowmass Conopa. We know the cria from this most incredible lineup will truly be the best of best of the best!

Global breeding

programs are beginning to question their ability to produce enough Royal Baby alpaca fiber to satisfy international textile demands. Genetics for the elite alpaca or royal alpaca (those proven to produce highly refined, fine, bright fleece and progeny that bear the same) are in great demand. We have many, years of concentrated and dedicated breeding ahead of us to supply the market demand for bales of Royal alpaca. As a result, we need to become more discerning in our breeding and pay close attention to what is happening in the global market. We must be careful as breeders and judges to not limit our focus on breeding for a particular style of crimp or curvature based on sheep industry models. In this way, we can maintain some of the best properties that make alpaca elite; fineness, brightness, soft handle, added staple length, and extreme versatility in milling processes.

Here’s another golden opportunity to acquire a Snowmass Matrix daughter for your breeding program. Golden in this sense because Snowmass XXXcentic has magnificent color lineage behind her which one would never know, as she is as pure white with some of the most beautiful and advanced white fleece characteristics. Thanks to her DNA typed pedigree, you can see there is a great deal of exciting color behind her, which gave us her name, “Snowmass XXXcentric.” Snowmass XXXcentric is quite a unique Matrix daughter as she brings in some our most unique colored large framed-extremely fine fleeced lineages such as Snowmass XXXtreme. There is a reason for the name play on extreme in this line. Her Dam, Snowmass XXXtremely Fine, like Snowmass XXXtreme himself and his Dam, are all very large-framed alpacas but have extremely fine, dense fleeces of which you typically find on the smaller merino type alpacas like Matrix himself. To have large-framed alpacas which maintain fineness is truly extreme. This line has proven to carry this extreme trait through the generations and there are no exceptions we can find in her Dam’s lineage, and so mating her to Snowmass Matrix was a perfect combination of balance and the way to solidify the fineness on a strong, well-built frame. You can see XXXcentic’s extreme fineness and consistency from her first histogram. As I looked at this and read the numbers, I knew she was one we needed to keep. We used her fleece in our video on sorting and grading because it is such a dramatically beautiful fleece to look at. With an experienced eye and hand, you can feel the consistency of what is being reflected in a scientific measurement of her histogram: 17.7 3.1 17.6 0.6 Spin Fineness 16.7. She has huge and exciting XXXcentic possibilities -- don’t let her get away! Snowmass XXXcentric was with Snowmass Conopa XXX from 11/9/2010 to 11/19/2010.

Royal Alpaca - Some Leading Alpaca Garment Producers and Sellers Comment on Royal Alpaca

Grupo Inca, Alpaca III collection KUNA [Royal alpaca] is the most demanding selection of the best alpaca fiber from both [suri and huacaya] made by expert hands of craftsmen who master ancient secrets, which allow them to choose the finest, softest and warmest fiber, also covers the whole color range offered by this marvelous fiber. All of which makes it possible for the garments made with this input to flaunt an unmistakable elegance and personality. Mitos, (A Myth comes true) An alpaca sweater . . . pure luxury . . . connects the reality to the hopes and wishes of our dreams, with our comprehension of superior clothing and world finest garments. Royal and Baby Alpaca combine the softness of cashmere with the warmth of sheep wool. Natural, Pure . . . Softness. The finest and most precious fibres on earth. Imagine a natural garment as soft as cashmere and luminous in appearance. Ultra-lightweight which maintain their new appearance for a long time. A garment with unique thermal qualities that provide perfect protection in summer as well as in winter. We found these fibres in South America. Our collection ranges from Vicuña, world’s finest fibre to Alpaca. Peruvian Connection Peruvian Alpaca: rarer than cashmere, warmer than wool. From high in the Peruvian Andes comes one of the finest and most luxurious fibers in the world. Peruvian alpaca—once reserved for Inca royalty—is silky against the skin, velvety smooth to the touch. Alpaca’s unique hollow core gives it an insulating softness that is extremely lightweight yet much warmer and stronger than wool. In addition, alpaca is hypoallergenic—often wearable for those people who are allergic to wool. Cousin to the llama, alpacas graze at elevations of 10,000 to 14,000 feet on the harsh steppes of the Peruvian Andes. Their thick, sumptuous coats grow naturally in over 40 shades—from ivory to black, with all the grays and browns in between—and the fleece dyes to glorious color as well. These noble creatures are tended by native Andean herdsmen, who shear them every other year at the on set of the rainy season. The yield is about eight pounds of fleece per animal. The first clip of the shearling alpaca, called baby alpaca, provides a featherweight, heavenly soft fiber that is even more prized.

Snowmass XXXtremely Mystical is one of our highest rated colored breeding females and certainly one of XXXtreme’s very best, and we are very proud to be making her available this year at our 2011 sale. She has produced four cria like clock work, each of which are highly rated in both fleece and frame. Her first son, Snowmass XXX Braveheart, was sold in 2010 to Cam & Shirley Thorburn of Caley Alpacas in Camrose, Alberta Canada as their lead stud. Her second son, Snowmass Mecury Rising was sired by Quechua’s Rising Son. Snowmass Quechua’s Rising Son, took the New Zealand National Champion for the second year running just this Fall, so we are very excited about all the handful of progeny we have from him before he was exported. A few of his best are offered right here in this sale. Her son at side, Snowmass Mystical Rose, is our first of Snowmass Matrix Rose sons and we are extremely excited to offer him at side of Snowmass XXXtremly Mystical. His sire, 2010 Color Champion Snowmass Matrix Rose, is owned by Marc & Sharon Milligan of Red Granite Ranch. Every one of XXXtremely Mystical’s sons are valued genetic lines, and her one female offspring, Snowmass Mystic Melody is one we are very excited to retain. She was born white and not a real surprise as was sired by a Quechua son. We were amazed at her quality as a white coming from such strong color, however she is as exceptional as the BEST of our whites with a one year AFD of 15.1. Melody (as well as Mercury Rising) is the replacement to keep this important Dam’s genetics moving through Snowmass’ breeding program. All of XXXtremely Mystical’s progeny give us extreme confidence in the excellence of this female. The most anticipated cria to be born from her is in utero as she is bred to Snowmass Matrix Midnight, our Black Matrix son. This will be one exciting cria!

You have one of our most unique in “Snowmass Quechua’s Accoya.” Everyone knows about Snowmass Quechua. Without question, Quechua by his proven herd and progeny analysis, has made the finest and brightest advancements in alpaca fleece beyond any other stud recorded in history. We know the importance of this in our herd as he “shines” above all like the Sun in comparison to the stars. This is one of the reasons Snowmass Alpacas has held on tightly to his offspring after his death. Even though we do not have the ability to use all his sons in our program, we hold to them until we can and each year we have offspring from his sons. They are consistently proving to advance and improve the next generation with the same statistical analysis as Quechua did. Snowmass Quechua’s Shahtoosh was one of the first Quechua sons we sold to Canadian breeders, John McLeod of Aztec Alpacas, Rainbow Forest Acres and Living Sky Alpacas, a very astute breeding syndicate with “Snowmass Quechua’s Shahtoosh.” You must go see the results of what they are producing with this Quechua son by following these links to see for yourself:, http:// This is true testimony to the “QUECHUA” genetics.

Snowmass Alpacas has not released any of his genetics yet outside of Silverstream Alpaca stud who is boarding him for Snowmass Alpacas. So we treasure the few progeny we have from him in the US they are few and rare. We started Rising Grace breedings with choosing from our lead white Royal fleeced males, starting with Snowmass Royal Prophecy, a Royal fine Snowmass Trilogy son who at 3 years of age had a micron of 18.1 and spin fineness of 17.1. He is just beginning his breeding career. We ultra sounded Rising Grace 7/9/2010 and had a possible early pregnancy but rather than loose time chose a cover male an Elite Maximus son we purchased from PVA alpacas, PVA Alteso. She then was put into a cover field with Snowmatss Moondance 8/11/10 to 9/9/2010 our Elite Subzero son who is not open to any outside breeding.

We purchased Blaze’s dam White Brilliance at the 2008 AOBA Auction with the express intentions of breeding her to Snowmass Legacy Gold thereby creating one of the first Legacy Gold / Jeremiah crosses. If we do say so ourselves, it was a great match. TGF Blaze is exactly the quality that we were hoping for when we selected this breeding. Legacy Gold and Jeremiah are two exceptional males who have earned the respect of breeders across the globe - first as young studs in the show ring and then, perhaps more notably, through their numerous progeny who have dominated the huacaya show ring circuit. Blaze is the full package and were we to keep her for ourselves, we would look forward to having her in our 2011 Show String. Blaze has the phenotype, confirmation and fleece qualities that will be winning ribbons for her new owner until she is ready to have her own cria. It has been a difficult decision to let her go, but that is what the MOC Sale is all about. Blaze sells with a breeding to any unrestricted TGF Herd Sire. Left up to us, we would match her with Snowmass Royal Challanger who has proven to produce extraordinary consistency of fineness, overall extensive wool coverage from head to toe on his progeny and in color.

Snowmass Midnight Moonlight was named in tune with her color lineage. Her Dam is a True Jet Black and her Sire a very bright White. So in the Dark of the Night was born a bright White female like the Moonlight in the Night. She is a very lovely female with a beautiful soft handled fleece. She is one to breed to color and or White, as with her lineage she should produce exquisite fleece in any color cria. She has not only Snowmass Nova as leading Black fleeced male but Infinity and Snowmaster via her sire Incandescence: a color collection of the very best in this young female. Last year, we chose to breed her to a leading White Quechua son, Snowmass Accoyo Elite. We are anxiously awaiting the birth of her first cria as this is being written.

LOVE at first sight . . . the lineage is all about the LOVE line as well as the pursuit of ROYAL fineness . . . Snowmass Vicuna Love is only being sold to help bring you to the sale as we REALLY should not be selling her, especially in light of the fact that her Sire died this year and so her genetics are that much more important to keep moving forward in the alpaca world. We hold on tight to Snowmass Vicuna Love’s Dam who is one of the only colored Quechua daughters from the revered Cambria line . . . again the Vicuna royal line of our breeding program. We bred Vicuna Love to Snowmass Conopa and she produced a male cria that stands to be one of the best white male crias of 2010 and would be in our 2011 show string. This young male will one day be an exceptional stud to cover color or white and perfect for the breeder looking for a male that can improve white and color in their herd. We bred Snowmass Vicuna Love back to Snowmass Conopa hoping for another just like him but this time a female. This is a great opportunity to own the best piece of Snowmass Conopa and our leading Quechua genetics via our beloved Snowmass Vicuna Love.

Date of Birth: 06/30/10

Sire: Snowmass Sub Zero

Maiden Dam: MFI Peruvian Savanna

TGF Subina is an excellent example of the consistency that Snowmass Sub-Zero, (Extraordinary and Rare white stud we proudly co-own with Snowmass Alpacas) is producing. We know the term ”elite” gets thrown out there quite a bit but we think Sub Zero is the real deal. His 2009 histogram, at six years of age was AFD-21.2, SD-3.5, CV-16.4, < 30 1.2, SF 19.9 curv 52.7. Exceptional numbers on their on but even more so when looked at in relation to his first year histogram – AFD-16.6, SD -3.1, CV-18.8, >30-0.6 one can see the evidence of lingering fineness and long-term consistency that is so important to our breeding program. Subina is showing solid bone structure, spot on conformation. She was shorn in July and her fleece growth thus far exhibits tightly packed staples with high frequency crimp; density, soft handle and exceptional brightness - a cluster of elite traits we have since seen repeated in the Sub-Zero kids. Subina’s dam, MFI Peruvian Savanna has earned her “grand dam” status. A first generation U.S. Accoyo-Alianza cross, who has made her mark on both Magical Farms and Cas-Cad-Nac Farms before coming to TGF. Savanna is a solid, upright female who breeds and births without incident - every time. Savanna first gave us TGF June Bug who was sold at the 2008 Futurity Show & Sale to Big Hat Ranch in Colorado. Her next cria, TGF Lightening Thief was sold as a juvenile to Double B Ranch in Texas. Subina’s full sister, TGF Subrina sold last year at the MOC Sale to discerning breeders, RobAsia Alpacas. And, we would be remiss in not mentioning Savanna’s role in creating one of the top white Huacaya studs in the United States, CCNF Archangel. Savanna’s first daughter was bred to Legacy Gold and Arch was the result. Sub-Zero further advances the picture by adding his full Sollacota genetics to the mix thus creating TGF Subina - an opportunity for the discerning breeder to purchase a truly elite package of championship genetics. Subrina sells with a breeding to any unrestricted TGF Herd Sire when she’s ready. FMI -contact Ryen and Ursula Munro or 207 415-9381

Snowmass Royal Challanger has sired another stunning fawn female that is destined to be a producer of Champions. Royal Challanger has constantly been creating offspring with exceptional fleeces and the true to type phenotype we breed for. His offspring possess bright uniform fleeces with lingering fineness. Ad Soul Sister’s dam, Hart to the mix and you add more color and a lingering fineness that beats the odds. Hart is a top performer both on the farm and in the Show Ring. As new breeders, we purchased Hart just in time to take her to the North American Alpaca Show. This was our very first alpaca show and despite the fact that we had a total of three animals to show, we missed her class! Sadly, that was the end of Hart’s short Halter Show career as she was ready to breed that same spring. In part to make up for our mistake, we entered Hart’s fleece in multiple Fleece Shows (winning 5 Banners) where she was recognized over and over again for the superior qualities we knew she had, Impressive fineness maintained long-term, soft handle consistent character within the staple and across the entire fleece. Hart’s histogram @ 6 yrs old was (20.1, 4.1, 20.6, 2.3, 19.5, curv 43.4, SF 97.7). _ Hart’s offspring have never disappointed us. Her first daughter, Andean Jewel was sold to Magical Farms for $40,000. Hart’s second cria is TGF Hoss - a 6-time Color Champion, is now standing stud here at TGF (co-owned with Pat Badger @ Alpaca Grove). Having Hoss in our Herd Sire line up as well as another daughter, Hart’s Delight retained in our herd, allows us to release Soul Sister and offer her at the 2011 Making of Champions Sale.

There are many other breeds and cross breeds of sheep that create some interesting variables within these fleece types just as in

alpacas. For reference, the following main sheep breeds are ones we find that best describe what we are seeing in the development of alpaca fleece types.

The only alpaca that does not fall into one of these resembled sheep breeds is the "Incan

Alpaca." These alpaca types are very unique compared to any of these sheep breed types described above. They are closer to the Cashmere goat, Camel, Musk Ox and Tibetan Antelope in fiber type than they are to any sheep breed. Vicu単a type fiber has a very high frequency of crimp which is so concentrated and dense that you can barely recognize crimp at all. The fiber is so fine that one can easily make the mistake of thinking there is not much density at all. Historic studies have shown the vicu単a to be the densest of all fiber bearing animals. The primary fibers are as fine as 16 microns with a 0.5 percent over 30 and secondary fibers as fine as 5 microns with an overall average of 13 microns.

Most of the progress in advancing the alpaca breed have been focused on the "progressive

alpaca" type. The Incan alpaca has been set aside and considered a more primitive type. We are certain that this Incan alpaca, which provided South America a history of Royal fiber unequaled to any produced today, is not to be overlooked. There is a specialized effort underway which involves both South American farmers and experts from many fields to resurrect the breed of Incan Alpaca in South America. They hope to restore the volume of royal fiber they once produced. Our breeding program also employs a strong goal of reproducing this fiber type.

We have another beautiful fleeced cria here!!! Snowmass Little Miss Loyalty. Her Dam, Little Miss Jennifer, is an Accoyo PPPeruvian Cahudie Daughter that we bought with great pride many years ago. This Dam has been extremely instrumental in creating some of our best color lines. She is the maternal line that produced Snowmass MATRIX. We really wanted to keep her daughter, Little Miss Loyalty this year and offer her, but we did not realize how old Little Miss Jenifer was. She is in excellent health but she is too old to put through the stress of an Auction. We then thought to offer her daughter Snowmass Legacy Lass, Matrix’s Dam but we realized she too is a bit old (9 yrs), so we said we must offer this year’s daughter, Little Miss Loyalty. Now we are waiting on her DNA as we think she is a Snowmass Chateau daughter, however she was also in a cover field later with Best Man. Her fleece is so bright that we thought it had to be Best Man but Chateau also a Quechua son is producing glorious bright fleeced cria as well and the birth date matches Chateau as sire. We will know soon but not soon enough for printing the catalog so stay tuned. Either one is a winner! Little Miss Loyalty is extremely bright and luminous for a Medium Fawn fleece. We are quite certain her fleece will explode with glorious density as do all these lines as they reach maturity. She is also sister to Nova’s Desert Edge, Legacy Lass, Truly Invincible, Medici, and Matrix Morning Glory. Little Miss Loyalty comes with a breeding to an Elite Snowmass Herdsire when she is ready!!!

Sumptuous Fiber; Extraordinary Rewards! As fineness and quality of wool increases worldwide, prices for the most elite raw materials are increasing exponentially. These days, bales of the finest wools are commanding unheard of prices that seem to increase parallel to fineness. This quest for the best is creating very real incentives for breeders in the alpaca industry, who are set to take advantage of world demand. Luxury brands are now seeking out fiber with the intention of procuring the very finest product for specific endproducts. Loro Piana is a classic Italian global luxury brand run by a regal family from Milan. Brothers Pier Luigi and Sergio have continued their father Loro’s almost obsessive search for the world’s best raw materials. In an effort to maintain their reputation as a top producer of high-end fabrics, they go right to the sources: New Zealand and Australia for wool, China and Mongolia for cashmere and Peru for Vicuña. Loro Piana began buying Vicuña from Peru in 1994 and for a decade had an exclusive contract with the government to buy the animal fleeces, which are used to make $6,000 sweaters and jackets that cost three times as much. In New Zealand and Australia, Loro Piana has bolstered its reputation as a buyer of the highest quality wool by holding an annual competition to see who can come up with the finest fleece. In Mongolia in 1997 the company set up a subsidiary, the first wholly foreign-owned company in the country, to buy cashmere directly from the herders.    “We check everything to make sure it is pure and of the highest quality,” said Pier Luigi Loro Piana. “There is good wine and bad wine; we buy only the good wine.” But Loro Piana is not the only company combing the globe for materials - for example, other companies now handle a third of the Vicuña coming to the market - so Loro Piana is constantly working on the next thing. In Sydney, Australia in 2004, a 90 kilogram bale of merino wool only 11.9 microns thick was sold to winning bidders Kathaytex, a Chinese wool mill, for $670,000. This turned out to be a bargain according to company representative Frank Yao, who had been authorized to pay up to two million for the extremely fine fiber. The wool is destined for high fashion suits and shirts that will sell for around $100,000. The source of this exceptional fiber is Primerino, the brand known to produce the softest wool in the world. Based in the Waroo Hills of Australia, the company has dedicated itself to worldwide production of superfine wool. Alpaca breeders should take note of the recent achievements in the sheep world. It is not a difficult leap to make to foresee alpaca bales commanding such prices. The key is quality and intelligent breeding choices.

Appreciating Diversity The greatest value in the alpaca breed we feel is its DIVERSITY - 22 + Natural colors and many grades of fineness. We have learned to understand and respect the diversities found in the alpaca breed (Huacaya). We feel strongly that failure lies in over simplification and trying to put the “perfect” into one alpaca – or, in other words, to create a simplified breed or breed standard for a model alpaca. UNDERSTANDING BASICS VALUES Alpaca fleece usage which has (4) main tiers of textile application based on Micron. Royal 13-19 Baby 20-23 Fine 24-26 STRONG 27+ Our directives were to be breeding alpacas that fit in the ROYAL and BABY end of this business which means purchasing and owning breed stock with the ability to produce this grade of alpaca. Besides fineness grades, we found there were many different styles of crimp, curvature, staple length and scale in our alpacas fleeces. We knew we had to implicitly understand these differences to know what textile value they presented in order to better select those types we wanted and or to change and enhance those that we did not want. We have spent as much time in testing our fleeces as we do sampling and grading so that we can better understand these specific values found in various fleece traits. We have discovered in our breeding program that there are 3 main differences for application in ROYAL fleece types based on type of textile. 1. Vicuña Cashmere 2. Merino 3. Silky
