On August 24, 2007 our award winning Preciosa gave birth to an extremely nice white male cria named Avalanche. Avalanche was sired by PATAGONIA'S Nishio, Patagonia's top herdsire, who is true black. His fleece is soft and crimpy, and his conformation is excellent. He is a full brother to our award winning Starlite, who has an incredible follicle count of 84.75 SQ MM! Avalanche's fleece characteristics are amazing! And as a white out of a black sire, Patagonia's Nishio, and a brown dam, Preciosa, he could easily produce color with fleece that is bundled, fine, and dense. Let him add to your herd!

Judge Tim Lavan (AWE 2009): "This male alpaca exhibits exceptionally consistent density and fineness all over. His fleece is very bright and bundled." Judge Wade Gease: "This young male's erect posture and presence screams 'Wow! Just look at me!'
