Italia is a solid mahogany brown female with such a beautiful soft fleece exhibiting a coppery shine. She has definitely acquired her sire's notable crimp character and staple alignment as well. Her conformation is very strong with excellent bone substance, correct bite & proportions, and a lovely head. Surely her dam's abundant milk supply has contributed to Italia's vigor, but her genetics are playing a role here too!
Italia's sire, Alpaca Adventure's Milano, is as macho as they come. He is a multi-champion producing champions. His sire, MSA Hemingway's Tequila, has done the same. Milano has the perfect combination of white quality from his sire and color genetics from his dam to produce stunning offspring in a variety of colors.
Italia's dam, Sweet Pines Baja, produces award winners every time for us and no doubt Italia will win some of her own! Baja's genetics include elite Peruvian herdsires such as PPeruvian Victor, & PPPeruvian El Moustachio. These genetics shine through in Baja's incredibly consistent champion fleece, maintaining an ultra fineness (low 20s) year after year. As Italia ages, we see that she is following right in her mother's footsteps.
Italia's first cria, Nazca, is a copper brown male with a few small black spots out of our multi-champion herdsire Crescent Moon's Daytona. His fleece is dense, silky, long, shiny, with a very attractive crimp.
Italia's 2019 son, Quito, is a beautifully put together rich brown little guy. He is soft, dense, exhibits gorgeous crimp, and a spunky personality.
Italia's 2021 daughter, Saffron, surprised us with her gold fleece, but it is absolutely wonderful!
Italia consistently produces quality offspring. She births without assistance and has ample milk along with a strong bond with her cria.
