The lovely Lilac Rose - The prior owner of her dam had wanted to name her Grace when she was born, but we already had that name in our herd. So we went with a visual description of her fleece, the color hues of nearly pink purple tips - you had to see in person. Her mother "Mary" is a real doll and this girl was born curious and sweet as can be. We can hardly stand it she is so cute and personable!

Motherhood has just seemed to make Lilac even sweeter. She was one of the rare moms that licked her baby from head to toe upon delivery - a matter of fact she licked a few of us months following lol. Witnessing her birth was one of those extremely special moments. Besides textbook delivery, within minutes of her being born, Lilac was licking her baby and baby was kissing back and flipping up her tail. Their video got a lot of shares. Matter of fact I uploaded it on youtube so it can be viewed here.

At shows, California classic Lilac took a 2nd place in halter as the youngest in the class and a 1st place in walking fleece! Then at the Great Western Alpaca Show she took a 2nd place in halter and walking fleece in a tough competition.

Her fleece exhibits wonderful luster as affirmed by multiple judges. Fleece was noted as well under 18 micron, super fine with extremely fine secondary fibers coming in noted. From two different fleece judges very similar scores of uniformity of length 7/10 uniformity of micron 4/5 absence of guard hair 7/10 lock structure 5/5 uniformity of color a 17/20 in fineness/handle and luster. Did we mention she is grey? We can't express the joy and happiness. We feel that she really wow'd the fleece judges and we can't tell you how much we value their expertise. She recently took a 2nd place in a spin-off. We added purple bamboo blended to her fleece for yarn - just beautiful!

Her sire, Greystone's Marquis certainly gets an atta boy here. His genetics blend two big grey lines together. Those breeding for rare grey suris need to check out this baby's daddy.

Lilac delivered a real beauty by WI the Admiral. We were hoping to add some density in fleece and were willing to gamble on color. Pleasantly surprised with an intriguing rose grey swirl with silver. -- looks very much like it will be a silver grey after shearing!
