If youre looking for fleece with crimp, density, brightness and handle this 3/8 accoyo male has it all. Son of Peruvian Presidio, one of Caligula's greatest sons, as well as Royal Fawn and Hemingway on the dams side. Donato's demeanor is gentle and he is very easy to handle. What great genetics to add to any herd. Truly some of the best fleece you will find. Donato's fleece placed 5th at the 2008 AOBA National F2F Fleece show. Donato has 11 offspring on the ground including 4 at Oak Lawn Alpacas and his offspring all carry the fleece characteristics that you want to see passed down. The density, fineness, crimp and brightness are outstanding. We can show you the fleece improvements from dam to offspring. Two of Donatos offspring are Peruvian Donner and Peruvian Libertie. Both of these offspring had 16.8 and 18 micron respectively. Both have done extremely well in the showring including blue ribbons in the always tough white classes.
