What is the best colour for an alpaca?

They come in a variety of shades - what would you choose if you were starting out keeping alpacas?

Colours stretch from true white to true black, via fawns and browns. We also have some Welsh gray - which manifests in the wet weather when they get all muddy! But since they are 'dry-clean' animals there true colour emerges when they dry out and fluff up again.

Genetics being what it is, you can't be guaranteed to get a particular colour but the art of breeding proves itself over time.
