Dundee's AJ Stormcat 

1x Champ, TB Champion, Sire of TB Champions!

Dundee's AJ Stormcat

Huacaya, Herdsire (Male), Proven, True Black, 7/8 Peruvian, 1/8 Chilean
ARI# 1434518 | DOB: 8/19/2007

Stormcat is VERY black (3 of his 4 grandparents are black!)--it's late summer, and his fleece is Blue-Black--it actually looks like black velvet! He has a long long staple, a very bright fleece with pleasing medium crimp and organized structure. Very big bone on a correct, compact frame, with a level topline and fleece all the way THRU his toes. He has a teddy bear head that is so appealing on huacayas, with a good bite, and a pleasing personality that is worth breeding ...

Derwydd Peruvian Inti-Siqay 

1/8 Accoyo, 3x Champ, Multi-Champ Fawn, Awesome Fleece, Color!

Derwydd Peruvian Inti-Siqay

Huacaya, Female, Proven, Light Fawn, Full Peruvian
| DOB: 10/24/2006
Having lost to Derwydd Peruvian Inti-Siqay (aka "Suzy") several times in the show ring, I was honored to be able to buy her at the 2008 AOBA auction! She is a light fawn female with a well-balanced medium frame. She has a dark fawn spot on her right front leg--some would say she is dark fawn with a large light fawn spot. She certainly can pass dark genetics, as demonstrated by her multichampion TB son, Torrefacto!
Suzy's pedigree is outstanding--her sire is Derwydd Peruvian Inti-Sapa,...

Bidding Info


Torrefacto--it's a delicious Spanish coffee bean that is finely coated in sugar before roasting. Yumm! That describes our Torrefacto to a "T"! He's a true black son of our Champion black herdsire, Dundee's AJ Stormcat and our multiple-championship fawn gal, Derwydd Peruvian Inti-Siqay. His dam took Reserve Color Champion in Fleece at the AOBA/International Fleece show in 2009, and our Torrefacto combines the best qualities of both of his parents. His sire comes from very black bloodlines known for retention of fineness, great coformation, and Torrefacto shares his sire's mellow temperament. His dam has incredibly dense, crimped fleece with a lo-o-ong staple length.

Torrefacto has a correct, compact , strong conformation--he's matured into an impressive macho. His fleece is bright and nicely crimped with a lovely handle and it is almost blue-black in hue. He has the cutest silver/white spot right on the tip of his nose. We think he's going to be something special, and so do the judges--he took a blue ribbon his first time out in the ring, and another 1st of 6 at the California Classic. I've just skirted his 2012 blanket for the fleece shows--he has fine fleece with a lovely handle, brightness, and nice bundling. It's yummy!---WOW--his 2013 fleece is EVEN BETTER--and it took RESERVE CHAMPION at the show! He's developed well-defined bundles with very high frequency crimp, brightness, and consistency of crimp. Torrefacto took 1st and Color Champion in the 2014 AlpacaMania Fleece show--with his 4rth Fleece! His dam, Inti-Siqay is really kicking in with her AOBA/International Championship fleece!

Torrefacto is 4 1/2 years old now, and his first crias are on the ground. Moka is a TB female with matching white "spats" on her hind feet. She gets that cute white spot gene from her sire. I'm pleased to see Torrefacto has really improved both crias--Moka has fineness and density, with a medium frequency crimp and BRIGHTNESS! Kahlua is very bright, has a wonderful handle (his was the first cria fleece I sold), and also a medium amplitude crimp and very long staple length.

***Seller reserves 2 breedings to Torrefacto--drive by or will pay agistment for female. We don't want to lose out on this genetic power-house!

Check out our "Black is Back" package listing, featuring Torrefacto and an unrelated proven Black female!

Torrefacto has moved to his new digs at Alpacas of Marin in the north San Francisco Bay area.

There's more: Torrefacto took ANOTHER blue ribbon in fleece at the 2016 Nationals--the judge stated that he has excellent fleece characteristics for his age!
