Bidding Info


Crimpy from topknot to tail! Sophie is everything a foundation female should be. Her conformation and bite are on the mark. Sophie's fiber is fine, dense, exhibits nice architecture, and has great brightness. She is very typey to a full Peruvian, 5/8 Accoyo female. She has extreme leg coverage and a full topknot. Her fleece is the first colored blanket handspinners choose.

Sophie was never shown at halter due to her shy personality. Which is too bad, we believe she would have done well. She has done very well in spinoff's and fleece competitions, and is still in the high ribbons. Her 7th fleece was still soft enough to make into a custom yarn that is dreamy!

She has proven to be an excellent mom with plenty of milk.
Sophie's sire is the incredible Portland Kidd, an Accoyo Leon son who is a consistent producer of show winning offspring. Many are Champions including RA Martha, her 1/2 sister we have on our farm as well. Out of RA Cloud, a 3/4 Accoyo female with Pachacuti, and Felix in her line.

Call for a fiber sample, and more information on this exceptional female. 60 days free board, A breeding to your choice of herdsire, our excellent customer support, and more are included in this price. Take your fawn program to the top with Sophie! As with all our alpacas, she is BVDV PCR negative and microchipped. She includes our complete medical records and outstanding customer support.
