We are very pleased to have Zappa on our farm. Zappa is the full package and we are please with what is seen in his offspring in the abundance of length. Where do we start in describing this guy? His fleece is phenomenal in many ways, uniformity from head to toe in coverage, density, volume, amplitude with heavy crimp and brilliance. His fleece is extremely soft to the touch, you just can not keep your hands out of it. Zappa has the sweetest personality with his human friends and is quite the gentleman with his alpaca ladies.

Zappa's First Cria arrive July of 2017 a fabulous male, his fleece is very promising, the brightness in his fleece is impressive. Looking forward to seeing his fleece after shearing in 2018. Zappa has several babies on the ground, two will be ready for breeding this year with Zappa's reputation of producing long staple length, his babies show it. His daughter's have over four inches of growth on them now November of 2020, just had to measure their growth while they in in the breeding pen.

Update on Fiber Density results:

Data Details: Density, 63.5 / Secondary: Primary fiber ratio 10.6:1
In-skin mean primary fiber diameter 24.5 / Standard deviation 2.8
In-skin mean secondary fiber diameter 21.0 / Standard deviation 2.6

Test comments:

The density number is moderate and while the two fiber population averaged, range and uniformity are higher that one would like to see it is important to remember that this male is 79 months of age....

It is generally accepted that working males will tend to move their fleece micron to the higher numbers after 60 months of age and along with that come an increase in standard deviation.

Opal is really something! She’s got her Sire’s looks, her Dam’s stature and a uniform combination of their fleece qualities. She’s a fleece producer...
