This little female is velvet is as velvet does. Packed with genetics and a brown highly defined, crimpy, fine, and dense fleece, Velvet would be the perfect pick to bring color, staple length, and conformity to your herd.

Velvet's sire: Rose Gray SILVER SPOON VIOLA has everything you could want in a Stud--a regal and ever-watchful bearing, a large frame with good, straight conformation, a model temperament, and spectacular fleece characteristics, including lots of staple length. Her dam, ROCKFORD SNOW LEGENDS ARTIC SUNRISE is no less.

In Viola's lineage, you'll find SNOWMASS PERUVIAN CASANOVA, multi-Champion producer, who sold in 2006 for $300,000; PERUVIAN BUENO, with almost innumberable accomplishments and Champion offspring; PV ROCKFORD'S RHAPSODY, out of AUSSIE ROCKFORD (who won ribbons in every show he has entered around the country) and FABIA OF STAR HILL (out of the top west coast grey herdsire--FANTASY'S GREMLIN & a maroon dam. Her offspring won numerous blue ribbons as well.); famed Silver Gray half-Accoyo AUSSIE ROCKFORD, out of Legendary Accoyo PPERUVIAN FELIX--another Champion thrower in a wide range of colors and fine fleeces--& HANNAHRUH--who's every cria was an award winner or color champion, including the well-known Painted Sky Apres Vous, Aussie Colorado Dillinger, and Aussie Rockford.

Velvet's dam-Sunrise brings a different spin on things, with Accoyo multi-blue ribbon winner SNOWMASS SNOW LEGEND as sire, and WHIRLWIND'S FALINE as dam (daughter of exquisite fleeced, Medium Silver Gray, WOODED HILLS WINSTON). Snow Legend is sired by the great SNOWMASS INCAACCOYO STAR, & is grandson to PERUVIAN SNOWMASTER himself! Snow Legend has extremely dense, very fine fleece, with lots of luster, crimp, and much more!!!

Sunrise comes from a line of lingering fineness (where their fleece stays fine). At the age of 6, her dam, Faline, had an outstanding micron count of 21.6, and Sunrise herself, at age 5, still has a Micron count of 21.9. Snowmass Snow Legend also started out with a first shearing of 14.4 microns, and still, at age 9, his micron count was 20.8!!

With Velvet comes color and more color! Her full brother Streak is a gorgeous medium silver gray, and Velvet could definitely throw those herself.

As proven above, with this female, comes extraordinary potential. What could this kind of addition to your herd add? Color, Lingering Fineness, Density, Staple Length, Strong Conformation..everything every alpaca owner wants.
