Shearing with care & compassion
Moonrise Alpaca Shearing was started out of a deep passion for quality fiber. With a history of hand spinning, knitting, and working in a fiber mill, we understand the importance of a proper shear on an alpaca. We are a two person shearing team based out of the west coast. We strive to shear each animal with care & compassion, leaving each client with their quality fiber and a beautifully shorn alpaca! We are fluent with the Australian one-pulley restraint system and shear on the ground with a mat.
We have a unique shearing technique that has been perfected over the years. We strive to make each shearing day as enjoyable as we can for both the client & the animals.
Areas serviced - California, Idaho, Oregon, Nevada, Utah & Washington
Currently accepting schedule requests for this years shearing season
My standard shearing style is a show cut with fiber processing always in mind. I never compromise the quality of my work. I give my clients a realistic schedule & always try to accommodate scheduling preferences. I strive for honest customer relations & look forward to working with clients year after year.

I starting shearing by apprenticing for Kyle O'Rourke of Tuckaway Alpaca Shearing. I apprenticed for two months under Kyle everywhere east of the Mississippi. When I'm not shearing I'm processing fiber, spinning yarn, knitting, dyeing and crocheting.
