Frauke resides with her husband and four children in Manhattan and South Salem, New York.
She has a background in hospitality and interior design and showed horses back in Germany.
In design school she discovered alpaca fabrics and their unique qualities. Soon after, she visited several alpaca farms which consequently inspired her to acquire her first alpaca in 2014. Ever since, she passionately embraces learning about every facet of the industry.
In September 2021 she became a certified AOA fleece judge. Since December 2019 she has been working on completing her halter and performance judge certifications.
Frauke is enthusiastic about helping the alpaca industry continue to reach its vast potential.
