Napolean Dynamite by Platium: A Gorgeous 3x Champion, dripping with true black luster our of Platinum Marquis.
Maharajah of PVA son of Herdsire of the Year, a gorgous male starting to breed in 2012, if it's perfect conformation, head style and bone density, on top of fiber density and luster you seek....take a peek at Raj!
We purchased our alpacas in 2002 and began breeding alpacas in 2003 while we lived in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range, and have continually worked to improve our herd through selective breeding and purchases. We now have one of the best suri herds in Northern California, featuring some of the best herdsires. Our bloodlines will will impress the most disconcerning breeder, we have reached across the United States to find our males and foundation females and bring them to our ranch.
Although our males are impressive, they are only half the equation, our females are nothing but amazing as well. Each female was picked based upon her particular traits, bloodlines or both. Many of our females as well as our males, have Champion ribbons.
We started with huacayas and have just recently sold the rest of our huacayas to concentrate on our suris. Their visual beauty captivated me and their fiber has held that captivation. The gorgeous locks and luster make beautiful locks for dolls, I have several doll maker clients who come back year after year for my locks. It also spins into beautiful 100% suri yarn, don't let anyone tell you any different.
As far as color, we have a wide array of colors but I like to focus on natural colored yarns and am drawn to the greys, silvers and blacks, when that fleece comes off the alpacas I can't keep my hands off of it and the luster underneath that is then brought to the surface of the alpaca is so captivating to me.
If it's greys you fancy, Platinum Marquis is nothing short of a legend. He is a great looking guy, at 8 years old he is still showing great independence of lock. He won't disappoint you, his crias are champions! This year (2013) he gave us 7 new crias, 5 greys, 2 lusterous browns, 6 females and 1 male.
Laramie of PVA was recently added from Lona Franks herd up in Oregon, we just are smitten with his bone structure, head, thick ropey locks with tons of luster, he is going to work on a few girls this fall ;)
