For those who choose the "unbeaten path," a pastoral life with alpacas is gratifying and often quite an adventure. No plush office, regardless of how nice the view, can match being out in the pastures (well, except during the blizzards!). Our days are spent wandering through the challenges and blessings of country living.

Years ago, I went to the elite farms who specialized in my preference for the rare black suris. Natural dark fiber is premium for use in creating beautiful, warm winter clothing. Lighter fleeces are often dyed darker colors so they are practical for winter wear, but I prefer natural fibers over dyed. Suri fiber is smoother and more luxurious to the touch than huacaya - so hence, my preference for dark suris.

I chose my foundation herd from the sons and daughters of the nationally acclaimed blacks - Park View's Kobe and Midnight Express; Wilkins' Microwave, Sudden Impact, Black Icon; Panam's Midas Touch...Bolivian Black Magic...Aurora's Borealis... True black suris are not found in abundance. They are like precious rare gems. Many exceptional browns also contributed to creating our black suris - Mahogany Prince, Mahogany Miss, MacGyver, Peruvian Angel, Meteor, Cantano, Azalea...

At Moonstruck, our focus is on good health and beautiful fiber. Our alpacas are reproductively sound and have a serene environment so they can live out their carefree days in peace.

You may be looking for a breeding for one of your special girls. Our black herdsires are excellent choices for propelling a dark suri breeding program forward. If you are just beginning, let's put together a small group that will get you started with quality!

Our spring shearing is completed and we have raw fiber for sale in all colors from white to black.


All Moonstruck alpacas are ARI registered and bvd tested negative.

DRIVE-BY SPRING BREEDINGS!

Offering drive-by breedings for all of our herdsires. Our Phoenix/Midnight Express PVA boys, Amare and San Matteo, have joined Prophet and Saviero this year in our True Black Herdsire Row! You can see the beautiful daughters of Prophet and Saviero right here on our farm. Our lighter boys are nice, too, with backgrounds from Accoyo, Alianza and Acero Marka. We like driving to the females for breedings - so much easier on them.
