Cassiel (Cassiel of Island Alpaca)

Cassiel won the blue ribbon for both the Southern Select Alpaca Fleece Show and for the CABA Fleece Show for 2013!


Cassiel definitely lives up to his name (Cassiel is the name of the angel who watches the world unfold before him without interfering). He likes to sit calmly watching the antics of the other cria, and enjoying the Vineyard sunshine.  

Cassiel has certainly inherited excellent traits from his dam, a daughter of CCNF Archangel, and his father, PH Navigator's Commander.


We look forward to seeing Cassiel's even disposition and beautiful fleece passed on to future generations- already Judge Wade Gease commented on his attractive sheen!

Cassiel has impressed us with the amount of fleece he produces. In 2011, 2012, and 2013 Cassiel sheared off over 10 pounds of fleece. Amazing!


Judge commented on his fleece for the Southern Select Alpaca Fleece Show 2013: "Nice brightness and crimp. Uniformity of micron was consistent. Handle was soft. Drafted evenly. Spins consistently. No loss in degree of production. Very nice yarn. Yarn usability should be durable and flexible. Nice brightness again! Soft and bright!"

CABA 2013 Fleece Show judge comments: "This lovely fleece was a pleasure to spin and produced a luscious soft yarn." Judge's score card reveals 90 points! Amazing!

Dam:

Aftiel

ARI#: 30425392

Heritage: Peruvian and Chilean

Color: Medium Fawn

Aptly named after the "Angel of Twilight" CCNF Archangel's Aftiel is one of the most stunning animals in the herd.

We would like to say that we think it doesn't get any better than this in color but we have not seen every colored alpaca in the US. But we reckon the phenotype, the pedigree, the fiber, it all stacks up here as being elite.

Speaking of lineage, Archangel's Aftiel, in October 2008, was one of the darkest offspring (only five medium fawn alpaca of 72) by her multi award-winning sire, CCNF Archangel (offspring of, Accoyo Legends, Snowmass Legacy Gold, PPERuvian Mr. President, and Augusto.) Only 25% of his registered alpacas have color.

Aftiel has fabulous solid color! Her fleece is fine and dense exhibiting high luster, and staple.

Her dam, Nova's Twilight, is a fabulous black with terrific presence and valuable heritage: Snowmass Nova and Snowmass Peruvian Casanova.

Disregarding all of these wonderful traits, and genetics, there is something worth mentioning about her personality... she carries with her, most of the day, a piece of hay, or a stick in her mouth just for fun and often times she comes close enough and offers kisses to her human friends... I have not yet met an alpaca with such endearing traits!

Don't miss out on your chance to own one of the first Archangel cria for sale!


Sire:

PH Navigator's Commander

 

ARI#: 1091861

Heritage: Peruvian and Chilean

Color: True Black

Parris Hill Farm's Navigator's Commander is a beautiful true black with an excellent fleece. This gentle and stately (solid) true black male is a real show stopper. Commander's grandparents, on both sides, have exceptional genetics AND lots of color. Commander's extremely soft, bright fleece exhibits very bold crimp similar to his dam and his half sister. He has won multiple champion and blue ribbons (at the SEPA Alpaca Show, the Breeder's Choice Futurity, and the Empire Alpaca Extravaganza).
