Our goals

• to produce well conformed, easy to manage, true to type white/light fawn Suris with fine, lustrous and dense fleece
• to maintain a small elite Huacaya herd
• to establish a herd average of 22 micron, cutting 5 kilograms of fleece (GFW) with low CV and minimum comfort factor of 95%

All animals are side sampled, fleece weighed and recorded each year.

Detailed thought and planning goes into Ambleside's breeding program, and top genetics are sourced. Use and selection of Stud Males is carefully considered.

Suri breeding females are rigorously selected from leading alpaca studs. Ambleside offspring, some now third generation, delight with their superior characteristics and superb fleeces.

To increase our number of superior Suris, an embryo transfer program was started in May 2005. Huacaya females with proven good mothering skills are used for the recipients.

Our Huacaya herd is based on Windsong Valley genetics: Purumbete Highlander, Windsong Valley Royal Inca and Purrumbete Ledgers Dream. Windsong Valley Iceman is currently being extensively used.

The quality of our animals is reflected in their Show successes.
