Beth is the younger, full sister to our Alpharanel who was the highest scoring white in the Suri Network Spinoff in 2012, and we think she may have even nicer fleece than her big sister. Apparently we were right - Beth just took the cup for highest scoring light in the 2014 Suri Network cottage fleece competition. Judge Wini LaBreque commented "Beautiful fleece showing luster and fineness." Beth's yearling fleece scored 18/20 for fineness and handle, and 16/20 for luster.

High luster and very fine fleece combine in a lovely package with good conformation. The histogram from her first shearing shows nice uniformity, particularly for a first fleece. Her regrowth is coming back in beautifully. Beth has not yet been shown, and we foolishly sold her first fleece for $60/lb instead of showing it!

Beth's dam is a Ramilo daughter, while her sire is a 3/4 Accoyo male sired by Accoyo Baccarat, making her 15/32 Accoyo. Beth is small but solid, and should be ready to breed in fall 2014 or spring 2015.

Beth sells with a complimentary breeding that can be used for her or any of your wholly owned females.
