He has Impressive fiber luster, staple length, consistency, density, crimp. fleece weight, staple length. Picchu is an ideal alpaca with beauty outside and desirable genetics inside. Not only is his fiber long and luxurious, his fineness is uniform throughout with a SD of 3.9 in 2014 histogram and CV of 17.6% (outstanding stats)! It is a relatively rare combination of fineness, fiber weight increases, and staple length are indeed an even more rare combination in a sire.

His genetics combine the lasting fineness found in the Hemingway and Snowmaster lines with the low medullation. His fleece is maintaining impeccable fineness, uniformity, and high curvature as he ages, and he carries it on a strong frame with impressive substance of bone. He carries the Peruvian Snowmaster line who was Snowmass Alpacas’ record selling male (at the time), sold to a farm in Australia for an excess of $200,000. From Australia, Snowmaster traveled to Peru, becoming the only North American born Alpaca to be re-imported to Peru, leaving only a limited number of offspring in North America.

Picchu's elite genetics include Hemingway, Snowmass, Snowmaster! ARAPAHO SNOW'S MACCHU PICCHU’S, HERDSIRE, IS IN THE TOP EPDs in THE NATION for 7 fleece traits and rates high in all 9 fleece traits. Picchu's dam was one of Snowmass's best foundation females!

Not many Herdsires can make the above claims. H
