Castana is a beautiful, very type female! Stunning in the pasture, then you open her fiber for a wow factor with wonderful staple, staples coming together nicely, lovely handle! You will be impressed by her fineness for a dark female!
David Barboza appreciates her density, uniformity, exceptional brightness, and handle.
Her Sire is Patagonia’s The Sable, a very correct male, crossed into the fineness bloodline for a stunning fiber!
We appreciate her pedigree and would like to mention her lines. Her Dam is out of Nishio, putting density into the line, and is the 2004 All-American Herdsire of the Year and 2007 Reserve Herdsire of the Year!
Grand Sire El Padre a direct import from Chile which Karen attributes the fineness of this line to El Padre. Castana’s Grand Dam is Aysen’s Venessa, who was also imported from Chile and Karen says was a very good producing Dam with an impressive line.
Castana’s Great Grand Sire is El Vasco who is part of Patagonia’s most successful, finest fleeced, and most dense (according to follicle count test) black line. Great Great Grand Sire was Neruda!
Castana’s impressive pedigree puts her genetics at a seed stock producer you will be proud of!
Castana was bred to Vinson Massif for cross into the Lennox line of lasting fineness. You can be sure she will be an exciting foundation female for your next generation of show and top breeders!
