Yupanqui's Bronwen
Bronwen is a full Peruvian, half accoyo female, with dark eyes and toenails, and dark markings around her nose, head and ears. Her award-winning dam, Jewel, is the only white offspring of 5Peruvian Chinchero, a true black herdsire imported from the Maychapampa herd in Peru. Jewel's dam, Marcela, produced the famous grey herdsire Silver Dollar, and the nationally respected fawn herdsire, Show Me the Money. Bronwen's sire is Ppperuvian Accoyo Yupanqui (deceased), the number one pick of the 1996 importation, who has produced multiple ribbon winners in a whole rainbow of colors. At 11 years of age, Yupanqui's fiber analysis was 24.0; 4.6; 18.9 and 7.4 > 30 microns, with wonderful crimp and a handle comparable to many yearlings. Bronwen has produced two true black females, from  breedings with our Champion "double black" herdsire, Peruvian Knightrider, and our silver grey Champion, Ben MacDhui. She was rebred with Knightrider in Spring 2008.

Awards: Bronwen won a blue ribbon in her first showring appearance, at the 2004 VA State Fair. Tim Lavan awarded her second place in a white yearling female composite class at MaPaca 2005, the largest alpaca show in the country, attracting top breeders from as far away as Oregon and Washington.

Bronwen's dam, Jewel has full coverage, great density and, according to show judge Mary Reed, "her handle is like butter it's so soft". She is a fine foundation female with great mothering abilities, good bone structure, excellent conformation, perfect teeth and a sweet disposition. In her first year Jewel sheared 6.7lbs of 21.6 micron fiber, and at the next shearing, only 10 months later, over 6 lbs of  22.8 micron fiber with beautiful character and crimp.

Jewel's awards: Jewel won a third place in the white halter class at Sante Fe in 2001 (class of 9) and a 5th place out of 8 in the white halter class at TXOLAN. These placings are remarkable for a white out of a true black, competing against alpacas with a pure white heritage.

Sire, Accoyo Yupanqui

Granddam, PPeruvian Marcela
Bronwen's sire, Accoyo Yupanqui, needs no introduction - he was the number one male pick of the 1995 Five Star Peruvian importation and he throws all colors. A full accoyo, with bright fleece, deep amplitude crimp and incredible fineness, he was mentioned by Don Julio Barreda as one of the top herdsires in the U.S. At 5 years of age, Yupanqui had a shearing weight of 11lbs of 20.8 micron fiber with a CV of 20.1. Although never shown himself, his offspring have won numerous awards. Now deceased, his bloodline is not widely available.
Grandsire, 5Peruvian Chinchero

Bronwen is the name of the Celtic Goddess of love and beauty, and means "pure of heart" in Welsh. She looks to be light fawn on her blanket, with a white head and a lighter colored chest area. Whatever the color, she is a truly beautiful alpaca! She has excellent fineness and soft handle to her fiber, lovely straight conformation, tip-to-toe coverage, a perfect bite, a wonderful typey head and proven ability to throw black. 

Bronwen produced a  full Peruvian, 1/4 accoyo, solid true black female from her breeding with our Champion full Peruvian true black Peruvian Knightrider. In 2008, she produced a solid black female from her breeding with our Champion full Chilean silver grey, Ben MacDhui.
