A half Accoyo granddaughter of Accoyo Camilio and Victor's VAccoyo, Caterina is well-furnished in beautifully marked fleece, conformationally correct and nicely balanced with good bone. Her fiber is just gorgeous - bright, with well-defined crimp extending to the ends and consistent throughout her blanket. The 2003 fiber analysis of her brown fleece only, was 21.8 AFD, 4.1 SD, 18.8 CV and 2.2 > 30 microns. Cat has an outstanding solid maroon sire, and a dark fawn dam who both shear 8lbs of fiber annually. Her dam is the winner of many blue ribbons and two reserve championships, and a daughter of Victor VAccoyo, who is no longer available for outside breedings. Cat has an irresistible, well-shaped head and wooly topknot, a light brown skirt, matching shoes, earrings, eyeliner and freckles! She was rebred with our true black full Peruvian Champion, Knightrider, in Spring 2008.

Awards: Caterina's fleece won a blue ribbon in the yearling multi class at MaPaca 2004, and Reserve Champion in the grey/multi category, with 200 fleeces in the show. Her 2004 fiber placed second in the HandCrafter's SpinOff at the 2005 Virginia Classic Show, first out of 13 entries at National Level, in the 2005 AOBA Fiber to Fashion HandCrafter's SpinOff competition, and another first at the AOBA National HandCrafters' SpinOff in June 2005. Caterina's 2005 fleece was awarded a red ribbon by Kristin Buhrmann at MaPaca 2005, the largest alpaca show in the country, which attracts top breeders from as far away as Oregon and Washington. In her first halter class entry, at the 2005 Blue Ridge Alpaca Show, Caterina won a second place ribbon and compliments from the judge for her excellent handle.

Sire, Skyrocket

Caterina's sire, Skyrocket, is a beautiful maroon half-accoyo son of Pperuvian Camilio. Skyrocket is covered with fine, dense, crimpy fleece down to his toes, and has a remarkable lineage. 

Cat's dam, Tell Kerlee Kue, is a truly outstanding alpaca in every respect, and has won many blue ribbons and reserve championships. At the 2001 Royal Manitoba Alpaca Show, she took first place in her color class, Reserve Champion juvenile female all colors, and Reserve Champion female (all ages and colors). She was awarded three more blue ribbons in 2001, including first place at the 2001 AOBA National fleece show. 

Dam, Kerlee Kue

Grandsire, Pperuvian Camilio

Kerlee is a daughter of Victor's VAccoyo, a renowned sire of showring champions in the US and Canada, and her dam, Elite Ophelia, was the first pick in the very small and select Elite Importation into Canada. Ophelia was hand-selected in this importation by her owner, who is an AOBA judge. Kerlee has proven to be a great mother - both of her crias were conceived in one breeding, born easily at good birth weights and gained close to 1lb a day. Caterina has inherited excellent mothering abilities from her dam, and has proven her ability to produce black when bred to our true black Peruvian herdsire, PC Peruvian Knightrider.

Son, Kieran
