Stoneleigh’s focus is to breed well-conformed white huacayas that grow genetically fine, long, soft, silky and deeply crimped fibre. Their aim is to breed dense fleeces that retain fineness, with low primary fibres. (Despite themselves they have also produced Championship winning fawns and browns.)
Chris and Liz have attended a number of workshops and conferences overseas and their international travel has given them the opportunity for valuable and extensive “hands-on” experience.
The success of their commitment to the alpaca industry has rewarded them with many Supreme and Championship wins in breed and fleece, including multiple National Supreme Championships, both in New Zealand and overseas.
