  • Aquinnah

Aquinnah (Pietro's Aquinnah of Island Alpaca)

Aquinnah, named after the ancient tribal town on the South Easter Coast of Martha's Vineyard has done her dam and sire proud. Aquinnah has had the benefit of inheriting both of her parents positive traits. She has the most lustrous and fine fleece!

Loads of personality and grace Pietro's Aquinnah has become a terrific producer like her dam Molly.

Aquinnah, named after the an ancient Wampanoag Indian tribal town, situated on the west coast of Martha's Vineyard, formerly known as Gay Head, entered the world on Mother's Day, 2008 without disruption.

She had a very strong immunity level at birth, (IgG) and was up and about in no-time. She has a very fine fleece, and we could expect it to remain very fine, as her sire, Pietro, at three years of age, was at 21 micron.

Aquinnah is ready to breed! We suggest our Estrada's Lucca of Island Alpaca for what we would expect, an astounding cria.

Take advantage of her new low price!

Molly is a tried and true mom, with a very inquisitive personality. She's a very sweet girl who is very easy to handle.

We offer a wonderful proven female still in the midst of her reproductive career.

Molly has given us the gift of color from greys to browns to blacks. If you need a female who has had plenty of experience with crias, especially if you are a first time breeder, than this is your girl!

Whenever Molly is pregnant she is always on our watch list because when she gives birth it's very quick. Not once has Molly ever had a difficult pregnancy or birth.
