Bidding Info


Star Dust is very well grown female who is exhibiting excellent character in her fiber with uniformity, style, amplitude and micron throughout. She has a striking head passed from her sire Ernesto and long staple length. We appreciate her tiny bundles and uniform dark brown color. She has a gentle personality and is perfectly conformed.

Her sire is Patagonia's Ernesto, a 7X Champion and Judges Choice Winner! He exhibits both fineness and density. He has Champion offspring, well proven to pass on his excellent qualities.

Star Dust's Dam is Patagonia's Teana, a 4X Champion female, exhibiting fabulous dense, crimpy and bright fleece.

Peter Kennedy awarded her 4th place at Futurity 2016. He remarked that Star Dust exhibited the best style, and character within her fiber of the group, with fineness, and excellent amplitude. Peter also remarked that upon opening her fleece he was impressed with the tiny bundles of fiber with remarkable style and character. Her comments at Alpacapalooza: exhibiting density, character and long beautiful staple length.
Helen Testa at CABA Classic remarked: very dense, packing on a lot of fleece on her frame, very fine, long bright staple, organization prominent throughout everywhere she opened her up! Star dust was a contender for reserve champion, and Helen said she was highly competitive for the reserve.
