Our breeding goals have been realized. We have been striving to enhance fleece quality with managed breeding, quality of life, and optimal feed. Our breeding stock are hand picked for their pedigrees, yes, but mostly for their fleece qualities. Some of their well known blood lines are Snowmass, Allianza, Caligula, CP Aroyo (Don Tango), Drambuie, Drambuie's Dark Knight, Lethal Weapon, Senor Accoyo Pablo, Accoyo Dupioni (Elitus), Sauk Creek's Sebastian (JSFI Dakota, a PPeruvian Emilio grandson), Sunburst Cortez, and Royal Fawn, just to name a few. There's also a few from Rhett Butler (suri).

We have now moved into the fiber side of business, and we are so very surprised and proud of our own success. The true results came to light while we were washing and drying the fiber. Even my breeding male Maxitos' fleece has improved. Come for a visit, and let us show you how to improve your fleece each generation. Please feel free to call anytime with questions~ or if you would just like to talk alpacas.

We have some well-known genetics that offer LINGERING FINENESS. We have everything from unproven males and females, all the way down to proven females and fiber males. This could be your chance to acquire that fiber herd you've been wanting, or capture some great breeding genetics, that offer both crimp and density to begin with, but also lingering fineness to boot. All serious offers considered. Discounts for keeping the family together. I have two breedings (that would turn heads) to offer to the first two breeding age females sold if they're not used in the next few weeks. Call for details.
