For those who need the scientific stats provided by skin biopsy to back up the claim of lingering fineness, here they are!

In June 2012, we had then 12-year-old My Peruvian Equador evaluated by Dr. Norm Evans, who states that "Equador's strong fiber traits are his fiber density, cluster regularity, S/P ratio, gland density, and fineness. He shows few fibers over 30 microns. This male is loaded with prepotent male genetic fiber traits that have been associated with champions. Consider breedin...

Far Away in a Galaxy Nearby, "Galaxy" was certainly a surprise package when she was born! Don't you know that Tripp Forstner had fun coming up with HER name!

Bidding Info


Choco Caliente (Hot Chocolate) is the second cria out of our finest-fleeced female on the farm. His sire, My Peruvian Equador, is retaining his fineness at just over 23 microns at almost 17 years of age! Check out Equador's listing to see what Dr. Norm Evans has to say about his skin biopsy stats!

Because Choco is not quite the "complete package," lacking the density we would like to see in a top breeding male, he was gelded at two years of age. He is, however, very soft and his crimp has really developed well between his first and second shearing. He would make a fine addition to a fiber artist's herd! Fiber artists love his fleece!

Choco is one of six Equador offspring born at our farm. If you want to see the quality and color that Equador is producing, just check out his progeny!
