Snow Diamond CRIMSON ROSE

Breed: Huacaya
DOB: 2012-06-30
Color: Light Brown
Gender: Female
Exquisite fleece!

Description:

Lot #1 in the Snow Diamond Select

Rosie anchors a 3-in-1 package that includes her excellent male cria by Snowmass Royal Knight, and she is confirmed pregnant by Accoyo America Jason, a champion many times over and producer of champions.

 

Snow Diamond Crimson Rose is a multi-champion, her sire is a multi-champion and her service sire is a multi-champion. We still can't believe we're putting Rosie (along with her stunning male cria) in the auction, but we had to scratch our original Lot #1, and we didn’t want to disappoint.  

Rosie is the product of one of our best foundation dams,Snowmass Crimson Sky, and the well known Snowmass XXXtreme, a Snowmass Royal Rose son. Crimson Rose is a light-brown female with dynamite fleece -- very fine, gorgeous architecture, bright, uniform and heaven to touch. The little guy at her side--a son of Snowmass Royal Knight--has similar fleece characteristics in a darker color.

Rosie took First Place at her first show, the 2013 TxOLAN Alpaca Spectacular, and she's been winning ever since. She was Color Champion at GWAS and Reserve Color Champion at CABA Classic, and most recently took 1st Place at the 2015 National show when she was nine months pregnant.

Her fiber stats (below) are outstanding, especially for a dark breeding animal, and her hand is incredibly soft. She places high in her EPDs, too, with three traits ranking in the top 2.4 percentile or better.

Rosie gave birth to this eye-catching female cria by the awesome Sunset Hills Golden Thuder. Thunder Rose was born in May 2015, and is being offered, all grown up, as Lot #9 at the Snow Diamond SelectRosie-daughter-September-2015.jpg.

Rosie and her 2016 cria by Snowmass Royal Knight as Lot #1 and Thunder Rose as Lot #9 are two of 50 great lots that will be available at the Snow Diamond Select. Join us in at the Deschutes County Expo Center in Central Oregon on October 8, 2016!

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.
