Nuance is an "Incredible Incan Black Male from a Royal Line of Elite Fibered Alpacas in Color" from the Snowmass breeding program. Incan Magic whose dam remains at an amazing 16 microns at 9 years of age is his grand dam. Nuance’s Dam, Incan Surprise, has exhibited the same fiber attributes. His sire, Nova, has been a multiple champion and is an excellent producer. Nuance’s pedigree of predicable fiber characteristics and award winning genetics are what we have been striving for in our breed...

Bidding Info


Skyline’s Ricarda has genetics that just can’t be beat. The results… a fleece that has amazing handle and fineness. Her 2010 histogram had a 17.3 AFD and a 3.7 SD. This is no surprise when you look at her lineage. She has Legacy and Elite on her Dam’s side and Nova and Incan Magic on her Sire’s side. We expect she will maintain this fineness as her dam, our AWE Color Champion, and Blue Ribbon Futurity gal, Canelita, still has a 19.5 AFD at 4 years of age! Ricarda has correct conformation and nice head as well.

Ricarda is also an easy handling alpaca. She has a sweet, friendly disposition and makes a nice PR animal. But what we really love about Ricarda is her extremely fine, soft handled fleece.
