Introducing ILR Snowmass Velveteer (Medium Fawn) D.O.B 23.6.2013

Snowmass Velveteer is a special male imported into Australia from Snowmass Alpacas – one of the finest breeders of alpacas in the US. He is a stunning medium fawn male with an impeccable pedigree and already has championship winning progerny in the US.

Velveteer is a rare fawn male that possesses a superfine fleece with extraordinary staple length, high levels of lustre in match stick sized micro bundles and a very high high frequency deep crimp and outstanding ultrasoft handle. He possess beautiful honey coloured fleece in a a compact conformational correct frame.

The quality of his fleece in his neck and blanket is nothing short of impressive and was influential in our decision to purchase this remarkable male. With our long term interest in fawn genetics we felt privileged to be able to purchase Snowmass Velveteer.

Julie Skinner describes Snowmass Velveteer as their #1 Snowmass Velvet Touche son crossed with one of our very best Ultra Royal Dams, Snowmass Royal Divinity who brings in many very important genetic lines. Julie loves Velveteer’s clarity of color, his incredibly uniformity in fineness, density, and brightness. He was shown once in 2015 at the Futurity where he took home 1ST place and then came home to start his breeding career.

At the 2017 Futurity in Kansas city, we were thrilled to see one of his sons, Snowmass Wedding Lore, awarded the Huacaya Light Male Champion. In addition, a Velveteer daughter came 2nd in the dark fawn juvenile class. Not bad results from just two Velveteer progeny entered in this prestigious show.

Velveteer is currently closed to outside breedings in 2017. Talk to us about how you can access his superior genes.
