Tessa – Yes, a Rose Grey for just $860+GST

Category: Females under $1000

Breeding Female, DNA Parent Verified: look at her grey cria!

IAR: 1011293 | Colour: Rose Grey: appears Dark Brown with attractive highlights | DOB: 18/02/2012

Tessa has confirmed ability as a breeding female. Sired by our black, Huari Lincoln, Tessa has proven that although she appears to be (and is registered as) a dark brown, she is in fact, a rose grey. She has the potential to breed grey (both silver and rose), black, brown and even fawn cria.
Tessa has been DNA parentage verified, so you know the wealth of quality alpacas in her pedigree adds to her value! Just look at her illustrious heritage: her pedigree includes well-respected alpacas such as ILR Alpine Fibers Brutus (Imp USA), who was sired by all-time great American stud Peruvian Hemingway, Pinjarra Microsoft (sired by Purrumbete Highlander, and a grandson of Purrumbete El Dorado, both outstanding Australian sires),  and ILR Pperuvian Pluro, a well known USA import to Australia.

April: $550+GST Call Liz – She wants to sell

Category: Females under $1000

IAR: 1017647 | Colour: Medium brown | DOB: 09/04/2016

April is a dainty, perfectly conformed little female. As per our commitment at The Alpaca Place, April’s parentage has been verified by DNA and she is halter trained to boot. A great little starter alpaca, April’s father , Huari Lincoln, was a black and she therefore carries that colour genetically although she herself is a very pretty medium brown, this means if she is mated to a black or grey male in future she could produce a black cria but other colours are a possibility.  She has successfully birthed and raised one cria previously so is good to go on the breeding front.

Annastasia A beautiful grey for just $860+GST

Category: Females under $1000

IAR: 1015628 | Colour: Grey: Unusual grey with rose, grey and gold tones throughout | DOB: 13/12/2014

 Annastasia’s name means “resurrection” and so it becomes apparent why we named her young cria Phoenix (now weaned). Annastasia is a most unusual colour. She is registered as a tuxedo rose grey/roan however she very definitely looks like a classic rose grey (not a roan) UNTIL you open up her fleece and there it is: silver grey. Every time she is shorn the true grey colour is very obvious. 

Although Annastasia’s fleece is not fine we have a regular buyer for her fleece who told Cheryl she wants it again this year because “it is a most delightful carded alpaca fleece, grey with interesting brown, gold tones through it. Oh my goodness, it has to be the best alpaca fleece I have ever worked with, spins up a dream and is so buttery soft.” She was disappointed to find that Cheryl had decided to keep the fleece for processing herself this year since it makes up into such an unusual coloured wool. She’s already booked in this year’s fleece as soon as Annastasia’s fleece is shorn. If you’re into spinning this girl obviously has a fleece with appeal.

Strathellon Paloma –

Category: Females under $1000

A great buy!

IAR: 1009965 | Colour: White | DOB: 24/01/2014

Sold!

With a pedigree stacked with high quality ancestors, Paloma is a quality breeding female with a long breeding life ahead of her. Her pedigree includes such alpacas of renown as Jolimont Conquistador, Jolimont Warrior, ILR Ppperuvian Auzengate,  and Somerset Peruvian Challenge. All of these high quality alpacas have inserted value to Paloma’s conformation and fibre characteristics. And when paired with our dark fawn male Arcady Zegna she produced a stunning male cria in February 2019 (Armani).  With a super fine first shear fleece of only 14.8 micron. a standard deviation of just 3.1 and a 100% comfort factor Versace is a top male with stud potential

At her last shearing (4 years old)  Paloma had 23 micron fleece with a 90.4% comfort factor.

 Zegna has  a lustrous, dense, crimpy fleece, and at 12 years old he was still only 25 micron with an SD of only 3.9 – almost unheard of for an alpaca of his age. The son of two champions, Zegna himself was successful in the Australian show ring before being exported to New Zealand after just one year of stud duty in Australia. 

Paloma was mated again to  Arcady Zegna   because of the great first-time result of this first-time pairing.  The resulting cria, medium fawn Armani will no doubt have similar fleece qualities to his older brother Versace.

Empire Rose Produces Top Cria – Just $860+GST

Category: Females under $1000

Empire Rose is the dam of elite quality cria - add her to your herd today!

IAR: 1011291 | Colour: Medium Fawn | DOB: 08/12/2011

Empire Rose is a well built female coated in gold! She has been Parentage verified using DNA, so you know her outstanding pedigree is genuine! Classic studs included in her pedigree include Purrumbeti Inti, Purrumbete El Dorado and Jolimont Sculptor – and Empire Rose is definitely the quality product of her pedigree. Whether you have an established quality herd, or are just starting out, Empire Rose should definitely be added to your herd!

Empire Rose annually shears more than 3.5kg fleece with a lovely dense blanket. Her 1st shear stats were: Mean 20µ, sv 4.17, comfort factor 98.3%. As is normal, her fleece has strengthened as she has aged, her last stats at 4 years old were mean 27µ, sv 4.7, comfort factor 80.2%, so her fleece has stayed consistent.

Empire Rose  had 2  cria sired by Gold Flash – Empire Dawn and Strike, who had first fleece stats of 16.6 and 17 micron respectively, putting them well into the Elite class,  and we are confident her most recent cria, Prestige, cria will be another elite alpaca. Ask to see Prestige when you call – you’ll be impressed!!

A Great Buy!

IAR: 1023880 | Colour: Light fawn | DOB: 11/10/2019

Prestige is a stunning young male with attractive conformation and a fast-growing, crimpy very light fawn fleece (you could be fooled into thinking its white!).  He has not yet been shorn but this little guy appears to have everything going for him – youth, health, personality, conformation and fleece.  He is a credit to his mother Empire Rose (who is a medium fawn and also for sale).  Prestige is definitely stud potential and we would love to keep him but, alas, we are moving out of the alpaca industry and he needs a new home where his quality is recognised.  Come and meet him!  From 7 months old he was working as a “pet boy” hosting our farm tour visitors so he is well handled, halter-trained and well adjusted.
