Delphi Alpacas invites you to imagine the possibilities .

Avatar has wonderful crimpy, dense, and fine fleece, but what truly
separates him from the other outstanding herdsires is his phenomenal
handle - due only in part to the exceptional uniformity of his fleece.
Cameron Holt, AOBA Senior Judge Trainer and world wide fiber expert,
(http://www.cameronholt.com) gave the following scores to Avatar's
fleece: Fineness: 15 out of 15 ; Handle: 5 out of 5 ; Uniformity
of micron: 7 out of 8 ; Crimp: 8.5 out of 10 ; Density: 3 out of
5 ; Brightness: 8 out of 10 ; Lack of medullation: 8 out of 10.
(Scores are given without regard to color).
Avatar's crias include Futurity and AOBA National Show Champions,
several National Fleece Champions, and numerous Multi-Champion and
Blue Ribbon show winners. More Champions continue to arrive; West
Texas Gold's "How Sweet He Is" won Color Champion at his
very first show, Txolan 2008, beating the 52 other brown males shown.
Delphi's Ava and Appeline also both brought home Championships from
the 2008 SWRAS.
Delphi Alpacas welcomes home Avatar, our "King of Delphi."
He continues to produce champions every year: in 2012 Avatar's kids allowed Delphi Alpacas to win the coveted AOBA National Classic Cup! This was awarded for the best showing by a farm at the National Fleece Show with four entries or less. Two of our four entries were Avatar kids: Avatar's daughter Lailah was awarded National Grey Color Champion at that show, and his son Rama was awarded First Place in the dark brown class.
Avatar's breedings are closed; he is unavailable to outside females. However, complementary breedings included with purchases from Delphi may include Avatar. Watch for Avatar offspring for sale, as well as females for sale bred to Avatar.
At Delphi, our firm belief is that our continued success with alpacas
is dependent upon producing alpacas of a quality that can only be
imagined today. We have refined our breeding choices in the quest
for the exceptional. Alpacas that produce the best, bred to the
best, the key to our success, and to yours.
