The elite genetics of Camelot Tor arrive in the U.K in the form of his son,THE ONLY SON OF CAMELOT TOR IN THE U.K, Gilt Edge Tor De Force of Ashwood.
This super fine young male is sired by Camelot Tor,Australia's ten times Supreme Champion alpaca.Tor De Force's dam,Grand Flowerdale Society Girl carries the highly respected genetics of Shanbrooke Accoyo Tulaco,Shanbrooke Society Attraction and Shanbrooke Society Lass, Society Lass was used in an E.T program and of her 17 cria,all 7 males were either certified for work in Australia and Newzealand or were exported to Europe as stud males,she is widely known as one of the most successful females in the history of Australian alpaca breeding. Shanbrooke Accoyo Tulaco was imported from Peru,Where he was a grand champion,also producing a long line of Australian champions to his credit. Society Girl is half sister to Flowerdale Shackleton who lives and works in Newzealand. He has been a very successful male in his own right but also sired the Newzealand Supreme Champion of 2010.

Tried and tested gentics have created a young male with a pedigree to envy with Jolimont Attitude,Jolimont Sculptor,IIR Peruvian Auzengate and Purrumbete El Dorado in the mix.

Gilt Edge Tor De Force Of Ashwood impressed as a young male with fibre statistics of FD 16.6 mircon,SD:2.8 micron ,CV;16.6 and CF ;100% ( Newzealand paddock conditions). His second fleece stats were FD; 18 mircon,SD;3.2 mircon,CV;16.7 CF; 100%. His fleece is highly lustrous,super soft to the touch and has good density relative to his fineness.His fleece has a high frequency crimp style that is very uniform across his body,and a deep amplitude in the crimp appropriate to the frequency. The low SD and CV demonstrate the uniformity of micron across his fleece.Tor De Force has a strong frame, is correct in his proportions and is of gentle nature making him a pleasure to work with.

We anticipate this male will offer fineness and a good degree of density, lustre and handle to his progeny and Ashwood Alpacas are eagerly anticipating his arrival in time for the 2013 breeding season.
