AOA# 20000394 DOB: 6/18/200519 yrs
Banderas is retired as a breeder. His info is here for reference. His last cria was a very dense and uniformly fine brown handsome little male - Spyker. Spyker is winning awards with his wonderful fleece! He is currently being offered as a junior herdsire and will likely be ready to breed starting 2024. Banderas is an EPD Top 1%er! His stats are excellent overall, but his EPD in staple length soars. Did you read Ian Watt's article in Alpacas Magazine? YES, length matters! To that end, we are ...

Lotus has her dam's adorable typey head and confident personality with her sire's remarkable crimp and staple length. Furthermore, Lotus' exceptional soft handle is just exactly what we would expect from this pairing. And she is holding that fineness year after year along with staple length!

Lotus' sire is Spanish Peaks Banderas, a 3x CHAMPION with 11 first place ribbons. Banderas' fleece is a dark rosy brown roan that spins into a unique rich dark rose grey. His yarn is by far our most popular with fiber artists and just flies off the shelf. He has produced unbelievable fineness in his offspring (15 microns on rose grey and brown!) and they are taking home ribbons, including NATIONAL CHAMPION. His ancestry includes Victor and Pluro, both elite Peruvian herdsires known for producing elite offspring even when throwing color.

The top genetics on Lotus' dam's side include Peruvian El Moustachio and 4Peruvian Legacy. Lotus has a pedigree not only packed with well-known and extremely valuable herdsires, it also has a plethora of rich dark colors including greys and black.

Lotus' first cria, Sweet Pines' Karmann, won 3rd in halter at Alpacapalooza in 2016. She is out of Rubio's Winter Rocky, a homegrown sire with elite Snowmass color genetics. We love everything about Karmann, including her charm. Lotus is an excellent mama.

Add a breeding for Lotus at a discounted price to any of our unrelated studs or those of Alpaca Harmony, including champion true black herdsire, Crescent Moon's Daytona.
