GREAT NEWS!!! ROCHELLE IS REFUSING!!!!

We've exposed Rochelle to A Paca Fun's Sonic Shift for her second breeding. We're certain he'll add to Rochelle's already impressive density.

With Rochelle's grey background, including a silver full sister, we're hoping that a paring with a high end silver male, will result in a high end silver cria. We DO know for sure that whatever color, this cria will be a beauty.

Rochelle is the first daughter of Alpine's Kerfuffle and Annual's Bea-2 Bomber.

She is registered as a rose grey. She color checked brown at CABA (her only halter show). BUT, when skirting, we found several HUGE grey spots. This year, at shearing we noted that there is even more grey coming into her blanket, and we're again thinking we may have well been correct the first time!

Kerfuffle, Rochelle's dam, is a medium rose grey female with a respectable show record and a lovely fleece. Three of her four cria have been grey... and it appears that Rochelle is roaning.

Bomber, Rochelle's sire, is a light rose grey, 9X banner winner, twice CC at AOA National halter show and once RCC at Nationals, second to his famous sire, .38 Special who took CC in fleece that year! No shame in that at all!!! At last count, Bomber had 45 progeny banners!

Grey breeders tend to discount brown as a sort of "failure." But Oh, my! THIS FLEECE! The handle is so silky and wonderfully fine! Very consistent, lovely zipper crimp and a CURVE OF 66.9!!! Simply amazing!

Her first histogram, at 11 months old, after being cria shorn, returned lovely stats:

AFD: 19.7
SD: 3.7
CV: 18.8 %
CF: 98.3 %
Curve: 66.9

Rochelle continues to give us a very respectable 4.5# of fiber from her blanket, and nearly 1# from her neck.

The hand spinner judge at AAWO, where Rochelle took a First Place, awarded her 90 out of 100 points, remarking that "the yarn had a bright, nice color and a very soft hand." and "Soft enough for any clothing use." Her first batch of yarn, blended with red bamboo simply flew off the shelf.

We're delighted with this young female!
