Surtierra Shadow is beginning to have a significant influence on our herd. Shadow was selected after a long search in Australia spanning eighteen months working with Tim Hey of Inca Alpaca. He was bred by Glenda Bartlett of Surtierra Alpaca Stud in Victoria, we are very grateful to Glenda for selling him to us in 2014. He is a large male who exhibits great substance of bone, a deep body, wide hips and broad chest. He moves with a fluid motion and displays high fibre coverage and excellent presence. The fleece that Surtierra Shadow grows is a deep true black colour and that is extremely uniform in colour. Each staple contains densely packed super fine fibres that are bright, soft and uniform in micron. The growth rate of the fibre is also high which all adds up to a very high yield of very fine black fibre.
Surtierra Shadow is a very important sire as his pedigree is full of highly influential black sires in Australia. These genetics are sought after the world over and to have them wrapped up in one elite black sire is a real blessing.
Surtierra Shadow is jointly owned 50/50 with Inca Alpaca.

Our females give us a rich genetic base and including the entire UK black female herd of EP Cambridge purchased in 2016 together with all of our original alpacas bought from Inca Alpaca and many bred at Redens over the years. We also have a number of excellent fawn females which add to the quality of our herd.
