  • Mary Lou, shorn

  • Mary Lou's Service Sire, Pizzaz

Mary Lou

A fawn out of two blacks(!), Marylou has a light blanket, with dark shading on her face and neck. Quite a beauty! Her fiber is soft and dense, with a silky hand.

Mary Lou's grandsire, 5Peruvian Silverado, was hand selected out of the Sollocota Region in Peru by veterinarian and alpaca importer, Anthony Stachowski, DVM, who chose Silverado for his own herd. Silverado is best known for producing award-winning, crimpy-fleeced offspring with outstanding density and a soft handle with little or no guard hair.

Mary Lou is also a descendant of The Silversmith, who arrived from northern Chile in the second largest importation of alpacas from South America in l988, and was owned by Eric Hoffman for many years. The Silversmith was an impressive looking animal - structurally flawless, with had above-average density. Medium silver grey, his color was consistent throughout his coat.

Mary Lou has been bred to Peruvian Pizzaz. Pregnancy has been confirmed via ultrasound. She is due mid-June 2010.

Mary Lou will be sold with a complimentary breed-back to any of Island Alpacas herd sires.
