Nuance is an "Incredible Incan Black Male from a Royal Line of Elite Fibered Alpacas in Color" from the Snowmass breeding program. Incan Magic whose dam remains at an amazing 16 microns at 9 years of age is his grand dam. Nuances Dam, Incan Surprise, has exhibited the same fiber attributes. His sire, Nova, has been a multiple champion and is an excellent producer. Nuances pedigree of predicable fiber characteristics and award winning genetics are what we have been striving for in our breeding program for many years. We were proud to be able to breed him to a number of our award winning black and gray females in 2005.
His offspring are all we hoped for; strong and straight with considerable presence covered with the top quality black fleece we are working diligently to produce.
We are thrilled to have acquired a granddaughter from Rico de Peru and Snowmass Nova! Many thanks to Lona Frank, Alpacas of Tualatin Valley, for agreeing to exchange our KCAF RRoyal Rhapsodee for ATV Delite.
Delite's fleece exhibits very good density, uniformity and wonderful fineness and handle.
Delite is a paternal sister to our Reserve Champion, Carmelina.
Their sire, Nuance(owned by Alpacas of Tualatin Valley and Skyline Alpacas), is a stunning TB by Snowmass Nova. On her maternal side, she hails from the Accoyo Royal Fawn, Rico de Peru, 6Peruvian 007, and P. Gold Rush bloodlines.
Her 2012 cria by Elation (Mr. Roosevelt / P. Andrajo, P. Silvio, P. Quicksilver and Accoyo Leon bloodlines) is our Adoration of ATV, a promising MSG female.
