Nosa exhibits the incredible fleece characteristics her mother passes on without fail - density, corkscrew locks and luster. Nosa is a curious, active alpaca, which has gotten her into some trouble - she recently injured an eye badly enough to lose sight in it. It hasn't slowed her down much, although she can be a little clumsy when startled.

Nosa unfortunately delivered two stillborn cria in a row and apparently carries a dominant genetic defect previously unknown in her line. She cannot be bred (although she doesn't know this), both for the sake of the cria and because another attempted delivery would probably kill her. She will be sold as a companion/fiber non-breeder to a farm that will enjoy her for her fiber and her personality, and will never expose her to a male.
