IL Tesoro (Estrada's IL Tesoro of Island Alpaca)

IL Tesoro won First Place at the TxOLAN Alpaca Spectacular Spin-Off in 2015!

Tesoro is a great looking alpaca with pure white fleece that is very bright and dense. His fleece has a tight crimp with a long staple length. He's got a wonderful conformation, he is nicely thick-boned, and has a perfect bite.

He produces a great deal of fleece and we are excited to see how much he will shear off this year. Tesoro has great genetics! His dam is Snowmass Tranquility and his sire is our very own CT Estrada, who has won multiple champions and blues!

Snowmass Tranquility


ARI#: 836146

Heritage: Peruvian and Chilean

Color: Medium Fawn

Tranquility is a terrific alpaca in her own right; she reveals not only conformational but fleece qualities that one would seek in a solid foundation female. Add to this her wonderful history of top notch production and you have an enticing alpaca to consider!

Her lineage is terrific too; Tranquility is a Snowmass Royal Rose daughter, known by many as "the maker of champions who makes champions".

Tranquility is a terrific mom as well - one of the most conscientious of all the dams here at Island Alpaca. She is the most watchful, and nurturing to her cria.

We are not excited to sell her, as she has produced some marvelous offspring.


CT Estrada

ARI#: 30522619

Heritage: Full Peruvian

Color: Medium Fawn

Estrada is a well-balanced male from two top parents. His Sire, Evander does it again with this amazingly dense, fine fleece male with a great handle and luster, extensive coverage and a great body. With his 2012 shearing, Estrada had over 12.6 pounds of fleece sheared off. Amazing!!

We are very excited to have Estrada in our breeding program. Alpaca judge, Wade Gease has said about Estrada, "He is the "complete package". Very nice fleece style and crimp formation throughout. He has kept his fineness/softness." Also, Judge David Barboza has said about Estrada: "His architecture and density is incredible! Spot on!" And Alpaca Fleece Judge, Cheryl Gehly has written: "Wow! Fine with great character! Quite uniform for micron.""Beautiful Fleece: fine, bright, well organized!". Awarding him first place in the competition, and again, after the fleeces third showing at the 2009 Empire Symposium and Fleece Event, she commented again;"Beautiful Fleece: fine, bright, well organized!". Most recent fleece circuit, Estrada's fleece (its fourth showing) took yet another blue at PAOBA show, May, 2009.

To date, Estrada has eight multiple Champ/Reserve Championships, and 27 first-place, blue-ribbon awards. See the details of his show record below, most in very competitive classes!

In 2009, Estrada's Fleece won the reserve Championship, and took first place in his class over another amazing alpaca who won the 2008 Futurity Championship that had 54 entries in the class! 

Both dam and sire have produced Championship winners so his future is extremely promising indeed.

Estrada is settling females. Traditional farm breedings with confirmed pregnancy, stud fee: $2,500. Mobile breedings: $2,000. Drive-by breedings: $1,500.  Please compare this champ to other herd-sires with similar show records. You will find him to be a terrific value!
