Our eyes popped when we met Amberly – that fleece! Its length was incredible – her cria tipping at six weeks old yielded a blanket with a 2-inch staple length – and it’s fine. Her coverage is awesome. And her confirmation is excellent, as was her size – 53 lbs at 3 months. This is one gorgeous young girl.
She comes by it honestly. Her dam Emelia carries Allianza and Accoyo bloodlines to good effect. At age seven she has a dense, bright 20 micron, 18 CV fleece with an excellent handle. I LOVE what this female delivers to her progeny.
Amberly’s sire "Ausable Valley’s Ascent" has a high quality fleece that has won him multiple championships and 10 blue ribbons – most recently at the age of 6, as the oldest alpaca at the shows. His fleece is fine for a dark animal and particularly notable for its very low micron difference between primary and secondary fibers – just 4.6 microns, when the average is over 8. In addition, his density is considerably above average and especially impressive for his color. He’s stylish, too.
Amberly took a 1st place at MAPACA 2012, with Judge Amanda Vandenbosch.
Amberly is doing well in the show ring...taking her very first 2nd place in a Level 4 show, in a class of 13 at the North American Alpaca Show! Judge Jude Anderson's comments: "Has excellent fineness, uniformity, great softness and handle, with loads of crimp!" Awesome for a new one!!!
Amberly's first cria was out of Snowmass Matrix for a Spring 2014 cria. She delivered a healthy Medium Brown Female.
She was then bred to ACCOYO America Navigator for a Spring 2015 cria. She once again delivered a healthy beautiful Medium Brown Male cria on March 18th.
Amberly seems to be throwing her own Sire's color of Medium Brown...he is Auasable Valley's Ascent. We are going to take some time to decide who she should be bred to next.
