Alpacas are shorn without harm once a year, producing and average of five to ten pounds of fiber. Alpaca fiber can be as soft as cashmere and is warmer and lighter than wool. It comes in 22 natural colors, which can be blended and dyed. Alpaca fiber has the luster of silk and is lanolin-free. It is spun into yarn to be used for sumptuous fiber products including hats, scarves, sweaters, socks, etc. Alpaca fiber is also used in the production of wonderfully soft and warm blankets and outerwear. Spinners, weavers, knitters and other fiber artists enjoy the outstanding qualities that alpaca fiber offers.

Diego is the first male born to our outstanding foundation female, Olivia. Like his four sisters before him, he has very fine crimpy fiber and good conformation. The skin on Diego's neck is so wrinkled that it was very difficult for the vet to get bloow drawn for his DNA and BVD testing! Diego is full sibling to our award winning female Velvetina, and we expect him to follow her lead in the show ring. With multiple champion Advocate from Hilltop Alpacas for his sire and Royal Fawn granddaughter Olivia for his dam, Diego has the genetics to make his mark in the alpaca world. Stay tuned.....!
Spring, 2009: Diego ribboned in his first show, the Northeast Alpaca Expo, at just six months of age.

Cria Description: Lily is covered with tightly curled dark fawn
fiber that appears to go toward rose grey on her neck, face and legs.
Time will tell what her exact color will be, but she certainly was born
beautiful! Lily’s full brother is our multiple blue ribbon award
-winning herdsire, Braveheart. We are so impressed with him, that we
knew we would do well to repeat the pairing of his dam and sire, Chanel
and Lancaster. Lily is the latest offspring of that breeding choice,
and she is every bit as wonderful, friendly and easygoing as her
brother. We are very impressed with her fine and soft fiber quality,
her conformation and especially her temperament.
