Congratulations!



Can you imagine what kind of clothing might be worn in a heaven, earthy or otherwise? We imagine in our heaven, maybe somewhat predictably, that one would be draped in an ethereally light weight and fine alpaca textile! At the very least, this is what our lofty Snowmass imaginations envision when we come across angels like Divine Lace.

Divine Lace's sire, Snowmass Divine Inspiration, has proven to produce remarkable fineness in all his of progeny. You can feel the divine difference in hand, and see it in the science of high curvature measurements. He also produces a uniquely long staple for his fine style of fleece, which is why we believe it is possible to go against convention to improve fleece weight without sacrificing fineness.

As a yearling Divine Lace was one of top three white females we choice for show. She had one of the finest, longest stapled, and most beautifully crimped fleeces we had ever seen. The only “problem” that arose was her surprisingly heavy fleece held her back placing well in the judging criteria. We decided to keep her home, and the next year showed only her fleece. Subsequently she was awarded two blue ribbons and a championship.

Snowmass Divine Lace is now bred to our 2013 Supreme Champion sire, Snowmass Defiance— his sire Elite Legend, is also a Supreme Champion and long running “Herdsire of the Year’.

What more can we say. You won’t often find females like Divine Lace. This years sale is an unprecedented release of prized Snowmass genetics.
