Announcement   Greetings Etsy Shoppers!

My name is Teresa. In my shop you will find items hand made from alpaca fiber and/or yarn. My husband and I raise alpacas at Hollyhock Farm Alpacas in central Minnesota. Alpacas are environmental-friendly critters who grow wonderful fiber. They share the fiber with me, and I offer it to you!

Alpacas have the softest, warmest, and strongest fiber you can find. I will offer raw fiber and roving from our animals. I spin, knit, weave and felt with the fiber from our animals. I also use commercial alpaca yarn for knitting and weaving projects. I prefer natural dyeing - using Kool-Aid or other things from nature when I dye my alpaca yarn. Most of my items are one-of-a-kind. You can see more of my work at www.HollyhockAlpacas.com and you can read my blog about living with alpacas at www.hollyhockalpacas.com/blog/.

I hope you will find the perfect gift for a loved one or a special treat for yourself. The strength of alpaca fiber means your purchase will last many years, even generations! Thanks so much for looking at the labor of my love.

Those interested in raw fiber - see my policies on reserving a fleece - http://www.etsy.com/shop_policy.php?user_id=7131515. Thanks.

Welcome to Hollyhock Alpacas. All items have been created by me in our smoke-free, pet-free home. The exception is the raw fiber - which is created by our alpacas in the barn and fields!

Accepted payment methods

Payment
Payment is due at the time of order.

I accept PayPal - which accepts major credit cards.
Shipping
I will ship in the US for now. If outside the US, please inquire. I'm still learning the ins and outs of shipping. Most items are wrapped in tissue paper and packed in a poly mailer for shipping. Please let me know if you prefer a new box. If you are local and would like to stop by to pick up your purchase and see the alpacas, your shipping charges will be refunded via PayPal. We love visitors!
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to be happy with your purchase. If you are not satisfied with your purchase you may return it within 2 weeks for a refund in the same form as payment. Shipping costs will be your responsibility and are not refundable except in the case of damage in transit. Only returns in new, unwashed and unused condition will be accepted. Please contact me to let me know you are returning an item.
Additional policies and FAQs
----- Reserve a fleece -----

The fleeces from each of my animals may be reserved. I know it is really early, I'll start taking reservations for the 2011 shearing - which will be in April or May. If you reserve a fleece, it will be listed here and in mid-January I'll create a custom item for you. Here is the list of name, color, and webpage:
Vagabond - light fawn, http://hollyhockalpacas.com/hfa_vagabond.shtml
Pelasia - white, http://hollyhockalpacas.com/hfa_pelasia.shtml
Spotsie Dotsie - white with black, http://hollyhockalpacas.com/hfa_spotsie.shtml
Jose Cuervo - dark brown, http://hollyhockalpacas.com/hfa_jose.shtml

Sonny - white, http://hollyhockalpacas.com/hfa_sonny.shtml
Rolly - white with black, http://hollyhockalpacas.com/hfa_rolly.shtml
We are also expecting 3 crias - colors will be posted as they are born

Convo me for an estimate of weight and price or photos in spring of 2011. Shearing date will depend on the shearer's schedule and the weather!
