An extraordinary Defiance son! SOLD!


Cadillac Jack is Lot #7 in the Snow Diamond Select!

Cadillac Jack is the product of two very special alpacas, Snow Diamond Celeste, and Snowmass Defiance. Celeste is a Shiftin Gears daughter out of Snowmass Crimson Sky, who is also one of our top producers. Celeste's fiber stats are always impressive, her EPDs are excellent, and her offspring have all been outstanding. Celeste now is passing along her superior traits for her new owners in Canada, and we are proud to have her son Cadillac Jack on our farm.

Jack's sire is Defiance, a 2X IAO Supreme Champion, Snowmass Elite Legend son, and the sire of many champion offspring. Defiance's fleece is incredible, and five of his fiber traits are in the top 1% of EPDs. He is a truly elite sire who passes on his enviable characteristics to his progeny, and he produces color as well as white.

Like his dad, Cadillac Jack has impressive EPD, in Jack's case four traits in the top 1% and two more traits in the top 2%. His fleece is fine, consistent, bright and dense, with beautiful, well defined architecture. Because Jack and his half-brother Perfect Storm competed in the same shows, we entered Jack into the Bred & Owned classes, while Storm entered the regular halter classes. Both males excelled in their respective classes, with Jack taking top honors in the Best of Bred & Owned at The Futurity and Alpacapalooza. This boy is destined to excel as a herdsire, and we would not even think of selling him if we didn't own his half-brother.

Cadillac Jack is one of 46 great lots that will be available at the Snow Diamond Select. Join us at the Deschutes County Expo Center in Central Oregon on October 7, 2017. Do not wake up on October 8th kicking yourself for missing this opportunity. It's all up to you.

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.
