SALE! (Reduced from $6,000)

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 CT Estrada, who has won multiple champions and blues!
