Angelina (Island Alpaca Angelina)

Angelina, one of our best, if not the best of females, has beautifully dense fine fleece, an incredible top-knot, a strong body and a terrific future!

Angelina, was awarded her fourth Blue Ribbon at the Empire Fleece event, topped even MFI Astovine, who took a R. Championship at the AOBA Fleece show! Judge Cheryl  R. Gehly commented that it is "Very fine, soft, and uniform" giving it an 18.5 out of 20 possible points for fineness and handle. 

The Alpaca Breeders Association has designated her EPD (Expected Progeny Differences) are in the top 5%!

Angelina sheared 5-1/2 pounds of fleece at less than one year of age. This was 6% of her body weight at the time of her shearing, and is very impressive when you consider that a typical alpaca shears under four percent of fleece in a full year of growth.With a sweet and gentle disposition, and her good looks, Angelina also has outstanding heritage; Her sire, prestigious 4Peruvian Altiplano, is an import from the Sollocata region of Peru and has produced an amazing number of show winners, Angelina included! (She was not shown prior to this, we could have expected a lot more!)

Her dam, Desni, is considered one of our best females, a devoted mother and is a blue-ribbon winner herself for "Get of Dam" in 2007.

For Angelina's spring breeding 2009, we partnered her with Maple Brook's Angelo (ARI#: 833149). Angelo combines the genetics of two of the most recognized Accoyo herdsires in the country, Caligula and Felix, along with the finest and most notable Allianza male in the country, Hemingway. At 15.9 micron at 8 months of age Angelo held his fineness density handle and coverage, and was awarded the well deserved Championship at the Big E in the Fall of 2003. Angelo's fiber won a blue ribbon, best brightness, champion and JUDGE'S CHOICE at the 2004 Empire Extravaganza.

Angelina gave birth in June, 2010 to a truly gorgeous little boy, Angelito. He carries on his dam and sire's angelic tradition, and has himself ribboned in competitive classes.

Angelina has VERY strong genetics. All of her cria look exactly like her! They have an almost perfect phenotype. They have great conformation with a strong frame, they are thick-boned, have impressive top-knots, nice thick short muzzles, and overall a beautiful and pleasing look. An amazing thing to have and we are very happy to have Angelina in our herd!

Desni D652 AOA


ARI#: 838586

Heritage: Peruvian

Color: Medium Fawn

Desni is one of our most prized foundation females. She is a tremendous mom and has the most gentle disposition. Her body and presence are terrific.

She is the dam to Island Alpaca Angelina our blue ribbon / reserve champ gal!

We expect the very best as she has passed along her most gentle nature onto all of her offspring.

Sire: 4Peruvian Altiplano Gold

ARI#: 166567

Heritage: Full Peruvian

Color: Beige

Altiplano Gold has been in Maine and Vermont--producing a New England staple bloodline. His offspring are highly sought after. His reputation for consistently producing high levels of quality in his offspring is unmatched by most males.


He has an amazing ability to pass on positive traits in fleece and conformation--with over 90% of his offspring (or those with his lineage) placing first and second in tough local and national competitions. His cria have shown instant improvement over their dams. Even dams of the highest quality have crias that are a step up with Altiplano Gold as their mate--all the right positives to the right degree to produce the complete quality offspring. From density coverage architecture and crimp--fleeces are taken to the next level. Body types are improved with heavier bone and greater "type" in style.
