Monique's exceptional fleece quality will be an asset to any color breeding program. Proven to throw grey, she combines the density, overall coverage, high consistency, and fineness which define the highly improved alpaca. Monique is a healthy, robust girl with outstanding bloodlines from her dam Julius Caesar's Angie and sire Rainman which includes El Nino, Hemingway, Caligula,and DDF Bobbie Ann genetics.

Monique was bred in 2012 to our medium silver grey herdsire Wintercreek's Veritas and delivered a beautiful light silver grey male cria September 1, 2013 - Golden Pine's Silverado [Sold]. Monique has grey fiber in her tail and has great potential to throw another grey cria if bred to grey. Her mother Angie (see Julius Caesar's Angie) also shows a lot of gray in her fleece.

Monique’s fleece, entered in a fleece “spin-off” at Columbia Alpaca Breeders Assoc. show in Portland, Oregon, received these comments from the spinner/judge: First impressions: Wow! Lovely fine clean fleece; great next to the skin; very desirable. Placed 2nd out of 9 with 1 point between 1st and 2nd place.

Etsy buyers of her raw fiber commented:
"Gorgeous fleece, nice color, very clean. Carded up nicely and spun into a real great yarn. Thanks!!!";
"The color is nothing short of magical - I can't wait to spin this up!"; and
"Wonderful yarn. Beautiful color and feel. Very warm. I bought every skein I could get my hands on."

Monique will be bred to buyer's choice of Golden Pine's herdsires Veritas or Antonio.
