Angelica (Estrada's Angelica of Island Alpaca)

Angelica won the coveted Judges Choice award for superior fleece at the 2013 Tennessee Alpaca Waltz Fleece show! In addition the Reserve Champion in her color class and First Place in age group! Astounding for such a light colored alpaca like herself!

Angelica, just like her sisters and brother: Anika, Angelito, Silver Angel, and Penelope look just like their dam Angelina.

Angelica's fleece is an astonishing white that is very bright, dense, and fine. It's nicely uniform and she has a very long staple length. For the last couple of years now Angelica has been shearing off over 10 pounds! In 2013 she sheared off 12.2 pounds. Amazing!

Angelica, just like all of her siblings and dam, 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. Angelina seems to have very strong genetics!

Angelica has both champion ribbon winning parents. Her dam Angelina and her sire CT Estrada. She's a gorgeous alpaca with a pure white fleece and to top it all off she has a very sweet personality and gentle nature.

We suggest to a new owner that Angelica be bred in 2020, to our very own Cassiel of Island Alpaca

Breeding History:


Island Alpaca Angelina

ARI#: 30863095

Heritage: Peruvian

Color: Beige

Angelina has beautifully dense fine fleece, an incredible top-knot, a strong body and a terrific future.


Angelina, was awarded her fifth blue ribbon. Angelina, 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. 


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 4 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 foundation females, a devoted mother, which we can expect for Angelina, 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.


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!!

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.
