A '98 import, we purchased Vilque directly from Exeter Investments of Peru, though she was exported via Chile. Vilque is a large framed alpaca with the heavy bone, correct conformation, and excellent body capacity to carry her through many years of trouble free production. Her dense fiber is a rich dark fawn, with good crimp and her coverage is excellent.
Snowmass Limited Edition
White, 830028, Peruvian
A Snowmaster son, "Limey" was second in the same Futurity class division won by Snowmass Invincible, who recently sold for $580,000.00. His fleece has placed 1st or 2nd in every show entered; at the AOBA National Show and Sale in 2003 AND 2004, his fleece tied with the highest fleece score in the entire show!
His dam, Peruvian Casa Blanca, is from the Sollocota herd. Her fleece, at over 10 years of age - is amazing!

This is the kind of female that can help put your male 'on the map' by producing Champions for you - in white OR color. Now that we have two white daughters by Bolero, we can let her go.
Impression has a gorgeous fleece - and lots of it!
Shown in the first photo with only 9 months fleece growth, and look at all that fiber! Bright with defined crimp, exceptional staple length, superior coverage and DENSITY. Note the character in the fleece on her forechest, in the 'apron' area.
Sire: Snowmass Limited Edition: a son of Accoyo Snowmaster with AMAZINGLY dense fleece and exceptional staple length, "Limey" exhibits the elite fiber characteristics you expect from Snowmass. Limey's sire, Snowmaster, was sold to Australia, so this bloodline is rare in the US.
The dam of Snowmass Limited Edition, 6P Casa Blanca, sold in the Snowmass auction in '07. At 10 years of age, Casa Blanca was 'WOW' in every way! *Casa Blanca is the dam of the high-selling lot at the 2011 Snowmass sale.*
DAM: Vilque, a female with exceptional density & leg coverage, and fiber that exhibited nice crimp as a mature broodhembre (breeding female). See her under our 'Foundation Herd' listings.
In addition to fleece qualities, Vilque is correct and solid, with heavy bone, body capacity, and 'style'. Vigor, easy deliveries, excellent milk production, and strong maternal instincts are valuable traits in breeding females - and are highly heritable. Impression carries these important maternal traits.
Impression produced a gorgeous female cria on 5/7/09 sired by Bolero. Her newest cria arrived 5/8/2010 - another female with an amazingly dense fleece and covered in tight curls.
We are keeping three daughters. That should tell you how much we value her line.
