Naomi is a strong-boned, "well-conformed female with a lot of style and presence", says Judge Susan Tellez; taking after her mother, Dexter's Peruvian Lily. At just six months old, she already weighed 100 lbs.! Her first shearing, with only 10 months of growth, yielded 4 lbs. 11 oz. of SKIRTED fiber. We processed it into 21 skeins of gorgeous, super soft fiber. Every year, she produces an abundance of fiber. You can purchase it from our website www.allthingsalpacaonline.com.) Willow Bridge Fiber Mill says the yarn is simply "yummy...worthy of an heirloom garment". A Snowmass Incaaccoyo Star (Peruvian Snowmaster) granddaughter with 4Peruvian Legacy on her paternal grandmother's side and CPeruvian Jaxon (the most sought-after male in the Canadian importation) on her dam's side. She has silver grey genetics on both sides of her lineage. She has bay/black feet like her mother. Notice the rose grey on her nose and ears!

A Snowmass Peruvian Casanova grandson and READY TO WORK FOR YOU! Zuri means "my rock" in Hebrew. He is small in stature like his sire and solid like a rock! Like his dam (a stately female over 200 lbs.) Zuri is a herdsire with strong bone and presence. He has an impressive family tree to go with those looks. A favorite on the farm, he has a pleasant personality and eye-catching looks. A grandson of Snowmass Peruvian Casanova, with Snowmass Inccaccoyo Star (great-grandfather) and 4Peruvian Legacy on his dam's side.
His yarn is lovely. Ursula Munro commented that his cria fleece has "excellent uniformity throughout" in micron, length, and crimp style.
Look at those fiber statistics...an abundance of fiber with a low micron for a smaller, dark animal. Impressive!
First Place at the Buckeye Alpaca Show, May 2013, judge Jill MacLeod stated, he is "a male with correct movement and proper proportion."
Zuri, like his dam, ACOV I-Star's Noah's Naomi, produces an amazing amount of fiber! 16 skeins of 150 yards each of sport weight yarn from his 2015 blanket! His 2016 fiber of 21 microns was processed by special order into gorgeous felt for garments. An impressive micron count for an adult brown male!
Zuri comes with all of his ribbons, fiber samples, and samples of processed fiber into yarn.
Put a little Casanova in your herd!
JANUARY 2020 UPDATE: DUE TO LIFE-LIMITING HEALTH CHALLENGES, WE ARE SELLING OUR ANIMALS. WE WILL CONSIDER ALL REASONABLE OFFERS. ZURI WOULD BE AN EXCELLENT ADDITION TO ANY BREEDING PROGRAM.
