LOT# 37 Snowmass Velvet Charisma



One of the most extraordinary things happened last Futurity when our lead color herdsire, Snowmass Velvet Touche, took 2014 LIGHT HERDSIRE of the Year. The majority of Velvet Touche offspring are color. He has produced some white and light offspring which stood alongside of our best whites in overall qualities so we took them along to show. They all supremely impressed the judges enough to land him Light Herdsire of the Year. The fleeces coming from Velvet Touche are ideal in terms of fineness, high curvature and consistently making the finest, densest fleeces we can produce. The one exciting element is the brightness he has put into the high curve super royal fleece types. This comes alongside the combination of the 30 years of lineage we have worked so hard to create representing predictability of excellence. Velvet Charisma has this both top and bottom in her pedigree. She is one gem in the world of alpaca genetics which is recorded with ARI and CIS-ISAG DNA.
