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 knew 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 1% to 5% EPD for Fleece weight, but he consistently does! That is evidence of his great density and long staple length. In 2019 he sheared more than 11% of his body weight, and the same is true for his son, Mas Snowmas.

So, at age 7 (102 months), we decided to get a skin biopsy from Ian Watt (drumroll, please!):
Density: 73.8/mm
Secondary:Primary ratio: 10.1 :1
Primary fiber diameter 23.2 (SD 3.0)
Secondary fiber diameter 20.9 (SD 3.1)
Comment: "Good density and excellent uniformity both between and within each fibre population. These are good numbers for a male of this age and, importantly, color..."

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!!. And check out his son for us, Mas Snowmas--winner of a blue ribbon at the AOA National Fleece show, and Champion fleece at the Gold Country Gathering. His skin biopsy will be done in Spring, 2022.
