STF Sassafras Represents all that is Elite in the Color Alpaca World.

Her Sire - Snowmass XXXtreme is one of the most PREPOTENT colored studs to grace the Alpaca breeding world. XXXtreme's progeny are nothing short of spectacular.

We were absolutely thrilled when STF Sassafras arrived - our first XXXtreme offspring! Her fiber is a consistent solid Meduim Brown, VERY FINE (See Histogram), has high frequency crimp, and is consistent from tail to head.

She has won 9 COLOR CHAMPION Banners.

Sassafras won the COLOR CHAMPIONSHIP at the Northeastern 2011.
Judge Jude Anderson said: "I have a Juvenile female here in this championship position I would recommend you take a look at. Her fleece is very bright when you open it up, with excellent density and, uniformity in to the belly - not just of the style, but of the fineness across the blanket. She is a lovely package – excellent density.”

Sassafras then won the Reserve CHAMPIONSHIP at PAOBA.
Judge Ken Hibbits said: "She is really, really impressive - a fleece that opens up and pops when you break it open. She has great uniformity and great character, she is very correct. One thing you notice when you open it up it tends to break beautifully within all those staples, showing that fineness, showing that architecture, and that’s what we want. She’s not bad to look at either is she? She is a beautiful girl, perfectly conformed."

Sassafras won Reserve CHAMPIONSHIP at Empire.
Judge Jill MacLeod said: “What I really like about this girl is that she is very fine, very even, she has great uniformity in all respects – and that did her very well today. Even her primary fibers are very very fine throughout that fleece and I think this is the kind of fleece that will maintain fineness throughout a lifetime.”

In awarding her the Championship at MAPACA, Judge Helen Humphries cited Sassafrass as the complete package, noting of her fineness, consistency and buttery soft - dreamy fleece.

Sassafras is now a 10X CHAMPION - a truly Elite Alpaca.

Her Son - SKYWALKER - is a Striking Fawn Male, having won 12 Color banners, and beginning breeding in 2018.
