Soft and fine doesn't even begin to describe this boy - 2016 Fiber Stats: 16.4 microns with a 99.3% comfort factor. 2017 Fiber Stats: 17.6 microns with a 97.7% comfort factor; Mean Staple Length 121.2mm. Stachys is exhibiting the same characteristics as his grandsire, Accoyo Pinachi - on his dam, Sunflower's side; adding a proven, yet rare Accoyo genetic to his pedigree. Stachys's first EPD Report at the age of 1 placed him in the Top 10-15% of the National Herd for all but 2 of the traits. 2017 results put him in the Top 5-25% for all the traits!
His grandsire Accoyo Pinachi was one of the best alpacas to come from one of the last imports from Peru in 1998. Personally selected by Julio Sumar for Derwydd Alpacas; Pinachi's fleece was super dense, bundled and crimpy with a high sheen, as is Stachy's. Pinachi died in 2007 from pneumonia and with only 38 cria on the ground, his incredible genetics are very rare, very sought after and can no longer be reproduced. His dam, our Sunflower Girl was the very last cria sired by Pinachi. Sunflower's dam is Accoyo Mayflower, a Caligular and Vengador grandaughter who also has extraordinarily dense, crimpy, fine fleece. A beautiful alpaca with the elite fleece characteristics that high quality, well bred Accoyos are known for.
Sunflower has consistently placed within the Top 1% of AOA'S National Herd EPD Traits for MSL and FW and the Top 5% for %M since 2013. Her son Cosmo was named a 2015, 2016 & 2017 Top 5 EPD Trait Leader for FW and has continually been in the Top 1% and 10% for most of the other traits.
Stachy's sire is Ideuma Creek's Accoyo Truman; who also comes from top notch genetics. His dam is Accoyo Venice, a maternal granddaughter of Victor and a paternal granddaughter of Royal Fawn. Venice comes by her Royal Fawn genetics through her sire, 4X champion, 11X blue ribbon winner and 3X get-of-sire winner, Accoyo Maverick. Truman's sire is Accoyo Stratosphere, a 5X blue ribbon winning Legacy son who has more than 40 champion cria on the ground. In short Truman blends Victor, Royal Fawn and Legacy genetics.
