FRA Peruvian Ophelia

Birthdate: 8/2/2007
Heritage: Full Peruvian
Registration: ARI Registered
ARI #: 30703759
Color: White

Type: Female Huacaya
Status: Open / Unproven

Description: Wow, what a fleece!! 16.8 micron with an SD of only 3.2 !! Her fleece feels like butter!Her half-sister sister, Avanna, at a year older than Chablis has a skirted fleece weighing 5.8 lbs and Chablis shows every indication of doing the same as she grows her second fleece.

Ophelia is a striking white weanling out of Royal Peruvian Avanti. With a charming face, she is easy to pick out of our shorn herd. Always confident and a leader in the creep-feeder group, she has graduated to the yearling class.

Her dam, 6Peruvian Octavia, has produced only females except for Octavian, her 2006 cria (see his sales entry). All of her progeny have been very successful producers and her first cria, Jopazzy, was a high-seller at auction. We have owned most of her daughters and some of the finest 2nd-generation crias have Octavia in their background. Ophelia should give you the same results, with the strength of her mother's production history and the fiber being produced by Avanti.

Ophelia's fleece has high frequency crimp with about 9 crimps per inch and a very soft handle. If you can see the brightness through our colorado dust in the attached photo, you'll find what Ophelia has to offer with a 6.5 inch staple in 10 month's growth.

Her sire is our Avanti, so she comes with a free breeding that you can use on any of your females during 2008.

Out of the toughest screening program for importations in 1998, Octavia has produced faithfully EVERY YEAR and her 2006 son, Emperor Octavian, out of MFI Brock was the first male. Her 5 daughters are excellent producers and her progeny have amassed many show ribbons.

2007 cria is another FEMALE!! A beautiful beige girl named FRA Peruvian Ophelia, born 8/2/07 out of Royal Peruvian Avanti.
It was a hard decision to offer her, but we feel that she has many more years of production to pass on to another farm.

WOW: Look at her micron at 9 years of age: AFD 24.7; SD only 4.2; CV only 17.0 You won't get any more uniform than this, and holding her fiber character at 9 years old.

Avanti is the golden cross of Accoyo and highly-select Alianza bloodlines. Grandson of the legendary Peruvian White Out and Accoyo Royal Fawn, he proves to be a sound genetic out-cross. A well-known alpaca judge says:"Let me tell you about his fleece- it has a fine,soft handle, high-frequency crimp with well-defined bundles, exceptional staple length, excellent density and brightness". We expect him to contribute both density and character to our crias and will allow only 5 outside breedings at our Colorado ranch each year.

At 5 years of age, Avanti's histogram shows remarkable uniformity with the standard deviation at only 4.5 microns and the CV at 18.8%, much lower than the "normal" SD of 5 and CV of 20. This is the sort of fiber that we need to be passing on in the National Herd!! His excellent density and bundling was recently proven by a skin biopsy.

Avanti now has 25 registered crias, with more in processing , all with outstanding fiber. See the fiber on one cria
