SA Grandioso's SERENADE
Uniformity and lasting fineness.
from good stock: Her grandsire on her dam's side is Legacy, now
deceased, whose progeny can be found in respected breeding programs all
across the country. On the top side of her pedigree, Serenade has the
venerable Royal Fawn; National Age and Color Champion, Royal Peruvian
Apollo; and 6X Champion SA Peruvian Grandioso. That's quite a lineup.
Serenade has bright fleece with a heavenly hand and the consistency and lasting fineness that we all covet. Her first-year histogram showed an ADF of 15.8 microns, and at more than five years of age, her AFD was 21.2 (baby-grade) with a CV of just 16.3. She currently places in the top 1% of EPDs for SDAFD and %M, and the top 2.2% for %>30.
Serenade was the first female on our farm to produce a cria by the phenomenal Snowmass Defiance, and this young female is beautiful!
With her sweet, cooperative disposition and anything-goes attitude, Serenade is a joy to have on the farm.
Sara is available for purchase bred to either Defiance (again) or Ichauway (exciting up-and-comer).

Definitions for Units of Measure in Fiber Stats Chart
Mean Fiber Diameter - This number, expressed in microns (µ), is the average diameter of fibers in the sample. One micron is equal to 1/1,000th of a millimeter. The smaller the micron count, the finer the fiber. MFD and AFD (average fiber diameter) are two terms that describe the same measurement.
Standard Deviation - SD represents an average of individual deviations (plus or minus micron values) from the mean or AFD. The smaller the Standard Deviation, the more uniform the population of fibers measured. It is the most stable of variability measures and is used in the computation of other fiber statistics such as the Coefficient of Variation (CV).
Coefficient of Variation of Fiber Diameter - CV (or CVD) is the Standard Deviation divided by the Average Fiber Diameter multipled by 100 and reported as a percentage. The CV is used in the statistical analysis of different populations of fiber (different animals).
Fibers > 30 Microns - This number is the percentage of fibers in the sample that measure more than 30 microns in diameter. When this number is subtracted from 100, the remainder is known as the "comfort factor." For example, five percent of fibers over 30 microns corresponds to a comfort factor of 95 percent.
Spin Fineness - This number, expressed in microns (µ), provides an estimate of the performance of the sample when it is spun into yarn. It is derived through a formula that combines the measured mean fiber diameter (MFD) with the measured coefficient of variation of fiber diameter (CVD). For a given MFD, a lower CVD will result in a lower spin fineness number, indicating an improvement in processing (spinning) performance. A 5 percent decrease in CVD is equivalent to a one micron decrease in MFD in its effect on spinning.
Mean Curvature - Fiber curvature is related to crimp. Mean Curvature is determined by the measurement of two millimeter (2mm) snippets in degrees per millimeter (deg/mm). The greater the number of degrees per millimeter, the tighter the crimp.
SD Curvature - Standard Deviation of Curvature means that 34 percent of the fibers measured are xx.xx degrees per millimeter (deg/mm) higher than the mean curvature and 34 percent are lower than the mean. Sixty-either percent of the measurement in a normal distribution lies within the first standard deviation. The lower the SD, the more consistent the sample is.
Comfort Factor - When the percentage of fibers in the sample that measure more than 30 microns in diameter is subtracted from 100, the remainder is known as the comfort factor. The higher the comfort factor of a given fiber sample, the fewer coarse fibers are present in that sample and the more comfortable that sample would feel against skin.
