little gidding farm suris
17585 Eagle Avenue, Lester Prairie, MN
Turning Hay and Straw into silver and gold
Eight years ago, while looking at alpacas, we happened upon a skein of suri yarn that changed everything. Unlike much of the alpaca yarn that we had seen this yarn was like silk and cashmere together. And we loved the animals, their extraordinary beauty.
However, little was known about suri fleece and how to breed for improvement. And little acknowledgement of the sole underlying reason for breeding — rare, fine fleece. So Little Gidding Farm was born.
We have a very focused breeding program — white to light suris with fine, dense, consistent fleece.
Breeding is done for the year! and we look forward to a new and exciting stud for 2013. And we have two beautiful new girls, Penny and Bea, and four new males, Max, Zeus, Davey and Dante.
Come and visit.
Breeding females — 22
Herd AFD — 19.6
Herd SD — 4.0
Herd CF — 97.75
Males — two studs (see Suri Studs)
Two young males with AFD 19 and SD in the 3's.
We will do skin biopsies in the fall to see if either might be used in a breeding program.
