Hemingway's done it again; with another exceptional cria…Hemingway's Ruth is excellent in every way. She shines with his genes, with the ‘Hemingway head’, lovely topknot, and perfect spear-shaped ears & a wonderful handle, density, luster, and more!!!

Ruth will add pervasive fineness and elite genetics to your breeding program, as well as remarkable density and lingering fineness (meaning their fleece stays fine), as she has already done for us.

Ruth's histograms show incredible fineness...

Description

With Elite International genetics including some of Snowmass' finest originals: Snowmass IncaAccoyo Star, Peruvian Snowbells, Peruvian Bueno, Hemingway, Snowmass Silver Pearl, Peruvian Accoyo Arctic, and Peruvian Snowmaster, how could you not be good?

As soon as she was born it was apparent Ruby had a remarkable fleece. Not only does she have one of the most exciting fleeces we've seen, but her fleece shows pervasive fineness, incredible definition, and dense bundles of bright, low micron, low amplitude, high frequency, tight crimp with long staple length.

Not only her fleece is exquisite though, her conformation is too! She shines with her GrandSire Hemingway's genetics, with her ‘Hemingway head’, lovely topknot, and perfect spear-shaped ears.

Her sire - award-winning Accoyo Snowmass Snow Legend - had a 14.4 micron fleece at 1st shearing, and his fleece has maintained it's lingering fineness, still at 20.8 microns at 9 years of age. This he has passed onto his cria.

While her dam - Hemingway's Ruth - has added pervasive fineness and elite genetics to our breeding program, as well as remarkable density and lingering fineness. Even after her 8th shearing, her AFD is 21.1 microns!!!! In 2 previous breedings to Snowmass Snow Legend, Ruth threw an incredible male-Uzziah, who had a 14.5 micron count at his second shearing, and a female-Dia with a 1st count of 15.1!!

We are excited to see what her breeding to Snowmass Reminiscence will produce this Fall. Reminiscence has almost impenetrably dense fleece & a World-Class Lineage, including Peruvian Snowmaster, Snowmass Edelweis, Snowmass Legacy Gold, Snowmass Belladonna, and Snowmass Andean Gold...and this breeding will surely produce another amazing animal!!

*** Congrats to Pete and Wendy Bogard of Savage Valley Alpacas. We hope you enjoy the new additions to your herd!
