Matahota (Mah-tah-ho-tah) comes from Katie Sue's lineage; Isabelle (Knighthawk of KPR), Ayashe(Snowmass Midnight Obsession), and Hismala (Grand River Amstel). He carries the quality of his predecessors and additionally represents the even handle and character, fineness, and density of Patagonia's Mondavi.

His Comfort Factor as measured is 100 his first shearing and 96.61 his second. Makes your hand just want to snuggle up with his fleece. Mild disposition and ease of handling make this boy fun to have around.

We had Matahota's first and second year fleece sorted and graded by Georgia Meyer. His fleece was determined to be ideal for roving and would be highly sought after by hand spinners. Both years were graded WR-2 receiving 5 of 10 for brightness, 7 of 10 for uniformity of crimp, 6 crimp / inch, a medium amplitude, with a density of 6 out of 10 the first year and 8 out of 10 the second year. For this style of grading he is considered a dark rose gray.

Even at the age of 6 his fleece maintained those fine qualities he was born.


2011 Spring Bling Alpaca Show - Amanda VandenBosch stated, "He has a young fleece that has not fully developed. It is a very bright fleece with a higher micron and varies from neck to tail."
2011 Minnesota Alpaca Expo-Peter Kennedy stated, "The forth place alpaca was placed here due to uniform character and color throughout with good staple length but was not as dense as the alpaca that placed third."
2011 AOBA National Denver - showed good briteness and fine handle but needed more annualized weight to move higher in the class.
2012 Wisconsin Spin-IN - Judge Sally Thompson Listed his presentation, breed type example, and fiber strength as good. He has a very soft hand with good length and very uniform.
