Bidding Info


Crystal Stella is a Color Champion female with outstanding qualities. She has extremely fine, bright, crimpy fiber with exceptional staple length, so extraordinary and stunning that “icon of the alpaca industry, Ian Watt” purchased Stella and Crystal Spartan’s fleece to use in his seminars! Every judge has made positive remarks on her fleece staple length and fineness. Stella’s 2009 micron was a 16.2 and her Peruvian import dam, Micay, has a micron count of 21.5!

Stella was bred to Crystal Spartan (Futurity Champ!) and she delivered an amazingly elite medium cria in 2011 who we undoubtedly named “Crystal Spartan’s K-O” because as stated, he is a “knock-out”! K-O was sold to The Vermont Alpaca Company and has won purple banners for them!!!

We were SO impressed with K-O that we repeated the breeding and were blessed with Crystal Spirit in 2012....a "spittin' image" (no pun intended!) of K-O! Stella blessed us with another Spartan eye-catching cria in 2013, Crystal Anastasia!

We just love our Color Champions that Spartan and Stella produce that we just had to four-peat that breeding.

Stella blessed us with a beautiful female on 9/11.....we named her, Serenity. Her crimp is tight, consistent, long and bright. She brought a little serenity into our lives and we will be making her one of our foundation girls!
