Alpaca Products Just for You

About Our Store

Here at Sawdust Alpacas, we use all our own fiber for our products. We send the raw fiber to a mill to be spun into yarn or made into felt. Sometimes I will dye the white yarn different colors. That has been fun! Then I spend my after dinner hours knitting or crocheting sweaters, hats, scarves, and mittens that you will find in the store. I have also used the felt to make men's vests.

We have been sending fiber to various mills to be made into different products. We have dryer balls, shoe inserts, crocheted bowls, coasters, and other items.

We have also purchased items from Peru that are one of a kind or we think our customers might like. These will often be less cost to you than the hand made items and probably items that we are not able to make ourselves.

Check back often as I will be adding more items as I get them made. I will always specify the sizes of the items listed. Call or email us for special order sizes, colors, etc.

Care of your items:
Since these products are 100% alpaca, please hand wash or use the delicate cycle of a spin washer. Do NOT use an agitator type washing machine. Lay flat to dry. Or use the Dryel home dry cleaning system. Not all laundry or dry cleaners know how to clean Alpaca fiber products.

Shipping by priority mail is included in the price of each item. (If buying multiple items, we will ship them all together). Items will be shipped, unless custom made products, within 2-3 days of receipt of your payment and should arrive at your destination withing 5 days after shipment.

We will work very hard to be sure that you are happy with your purchase. However, if you are not happy with your purchase, you may return the product if it is within 7 days of receipt and the item has not been worn.

We accept payments through PAYPAL. If you need to send a check outside of PAYPAL, please let us know. We are happy to work with you on your purchase. If paying by check, however, your item(s) will not be shipped until your check has been processed by the bank.
