Description

"Celeste" brought home 2X Blue Ribbons at the 2020 VAOBA Expo and the 2020 VAOBA Fall Derby halter classes at just over 6 months old. She has a very nice fleece and she is well grown for her age. Celeste is the pleasing result of the incredibly potent genetics of her amazing dam and sire.

Her dam, Snowmass Loro Lilly, is the offspring of a phenomenal herdsire, Snowmass Loro Piana, who is in the top 1% EPD's for AFD & SF, and top 10% for SDAFD. Loro Piana was the best producer of fineness at Snowmass, and it is a lasting fineness – he had a 16 micron fleece at age five. Loro Lilly’s fleece has good density, and she carries very good staple length. Loro Lilly also has a gorgeous frame with substance of bone and overall phenotype.

Her sire, Man in the Moon's Peruvian Ganymede, is a 15X Banner winner, including 4X Judges Choice male and the 2017 AOA National Supreme Light Male Champion!


Note: Best pricing for packages of 3 or more alpacas.
