Alpaca Products Just for You

Glenn & Carolyn Waddell

Farm Store

WE ARE GETTING A STORE BUILDING!!! After 3 years of the living room, office and garage being used as a home store, it is beyond time to have a place for our customers to shop in comfort for these wonderful alpaca products.

We have insulated (with our alpaca fiber), vapor barrier up, sheet rock, taping and painting is all done. Lighting is all in too. Floor is prepped and will get laminate flooring installed starting 4/26/21.
Then we will get to move the furnishings in and start getting product moved out of the house and garage. WE ARE ALMOST THERE.

About Our Store

At Sawdust Alpacas, we use all our animals fiber for different projects. We have yarn to sell, or I hand knit or crocheted items made from the yarn. We have felted sheets made also that we use in lining vests, or making various items. We sell some raw fibers. We have used the fiber 3rds (not to be used in yarn or clothing) as insulation in the barn. Sometimes I will dye the white yarn different colors. That has been fun!

We have been sending fiber to various mills to be made into different products. This year, we are fortunate to have a new mill here 25 miles from us, the first and only mill in Nevada. Most of the yarns on these pages was produced at Black Rock Mountain Alpacas and Fiber MIll.

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 and Returns:
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 within 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.
