This bay black roving is made from the fiber of Sienna and Alma Park Sable, 2 girls from our herd. Sienna gave us Alma Park Dante (one of the cutest crias ever) and then went to another farm who absolutely fell in love with her. Sable is the granddaughter to our most favorite alpaca of all time, Multomba who passed of cancer when he was 8. She is the spitting image of him and is a permanent resident of Alma Park. She is a great mom, but a bit standoffish to people :)
It is hard to photograph black well, but it is a black color with brown undertones. Even Sienna looks brown in bright light (see pic 5), but she is a bay black. Sable looks black in her picture (see pic 1) because she is in the shade of the barn.
