Bidding Info


Fine, Fine, Fine Champion Female!!! WP Vela by Verticase is just that. It’s no wonder with an amazing black production dam and a Quechua son as her sire, it all adds up in this one amazing package. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree as they say. Vela’s dam PrymR8 is a strong female all around. Strong presence, strong conformation, strong fleece character and a strong pedigree. Vela’s sire is the one and only Quechua’s Verticase. Verticase’s fleece contains all of the characteristics that any serious Huacaya breeder would look for in an Elite Herdsire. His fleece is extremely fine yet still carrying amazing amount of density! The results of his skin biopsy show that his density is 110 follicles/sq.mm which is off the charts!!! Norm Evans said “Quechua’s Verticase scares me as I have never measured a mature alpaca that is this dense with this type of micron count!” Vela’s fleece is uniform, consistent with a high frequency crimp style and a great blend of both her sire and dam.
