I never dreamed I'd have as fine a female as Poseidon's Accoyo Gabriella, but at the 2008 AOBA auction I took a deep breath and BID!! We knew we were taking advantage of the recession to be able to buy her, and we have never regretted that decision. Gabby is a compact to average sized female with strong fawn Accoyo genetics. She's a great mother, and her fawn bloodlines paid off with a light fawn male cria by Matrix in 2013!
You can see that she did well in the shows, with a blue ribb...

Bidding Info


The stars aligned just right, and Lord of Sipan was the result. We happened to have our full-Accoyo Poseidon daughter (with fawn genetics) in Virginia, at Double O Good Alpacas (home of Matrix), to deliver her cria by Royal Fawn. So, when I saw that a rare Matrix breeding was donated to the International Alpaca Odyssey in California, I bid to win! Sipan arrived 12 months later--born at Derwydd Alpacas, he was instantly a favorite of Jan Davis (who knows a thing or two about alpacas). She loved his bright, bright fawn bundles and beautiful crimp style.

Sipan has matured to resemble his sire, Snowmass Matrix (you know--the highest selling alpaca EVER at $675K!) in fleece style, conformation and temperament. He is a very compact male, but perfectly conformed according to the judge at AlpacaFest West in 2015, who awarded him a blue ribbon. It's impressive that a compact male would place in the top 2% EPD for Fleece weight, but he did! That is evidence of his great density and long staple length. And in 2019 he sheared more than 11% of his body weight--who ever heard of such a thing?!

An outstanding fiber artist with a wealth of experience with various fibers said of Sipan's fleece, "This is the most INCREDIBLE FIBER I have ever worked with!" She went on to rave about how it is finer and has a better handle than angora rabbit, etc... This is rare praise, indeed!

Sipan has 5 crias born in South Carolina--2 are GREY!!. One more cria due in Fall, 2018, but Sipan is back home at Alpacas of Marin in the North San Francisco Bay area, and ready to get back to work!
