Ursula Munro has been an AOA Certified Fleece Judge for seven years. Her interest in judging alpaca fleeces is an extension of a lifelong interest in fiber, handwork, textiles, and animal husbandry.
Ursula, together with her husband Ryen, owned and operated Tripping Gnome Farm Alpacas in Freeport Maine for 13 years and were active in all aspects of the alpaca lifestyle—breeding, showing, and education. TGF was awarded the All American Futurity Breeder of the Year Award three years in a row. Prior to obtaining her AOBA Judge certification in 2010, Ursula spent many hours volunteering at fleece shows and taking advantage of many fiber-related educational opportunities across the U.S. and in Canada. She offers educational seminars covering fleece skirting, show prep, sorting, and grading.
Ursula also works as a registered nurse and is currently pursuing a Master’s Degree in Nursing.
