Little Creek Alpacas

Plymouth, Illinois | 2,046 Sales

Announcement    Cria (baby alpaca) season has kept us busy! We will be making & listing more items soon. Free shipping with orders over $35.
All of our alpaca products are made in the USA by either us or our alpaca fiber co-op. Thank you for supporting our small farm and keeping us in business, much love to you all!

Little Creek Alpacas is a small, family run fiber farm with a herd of 54 Suri and Huacaya alpacas. Our venture started in the spring of 2007, when we decided that we wanted to raise our children in a more serene, spiritual setting, away from all the hustle and bustle of city life. All of our alpaca products are handmade or made in the USA.

My passion in the fiber arts is using my alpaca fiber to make alpaca batt blends. I'm not much of a spinner or a knitter, but I have a knack for mixing fibers on my drum carder in all sorts of variations and colors. I like to work with other fiber artists across the United States. Most of our yarns are hand-spun by fiber artists that I have come to know over the years. Each spinner has their own style, and it's fun for me to see the different yarns that are created from my batt blends by each spinner. I also utilize family run mills for mill spun yarn & roving. Each year, we send about one third of our fiber clip to the New England Alpaca Fiber Pool for socks, gloves, shoe inserts, and various other items that we can't produce ourselves. My mother, friend, and friend's mother help me knit our yarns into finished products such as hats, cowls, fingerless gloves, scarves, etc. These items are usually sold in person locally and don't make it to my online shop. I also make organic catnip balls, dryer balls, and felted "Peace Bears" with our alpaca wool by using needle felting and wet felting techniques. I plan on listing some of my felted items soon!

If you are interested in raising alpacas, we do sell alpacas from our herd-- both fiber animals and breeding stock. Please visit our website at www.littlecreekalpacas.com for information on our alpacas. Thank you.

All proceeds from sales go towards keeping our small family farm going. Thank you for your support!

About littlecreekalpacas

Sales 2,046
On Etsy since 2010

Little Creek Alpacas was born out of a deep desire to be more connected to the Earth and the living beings that reside within it. Our products are Earth friendly and sustainable, made from the fibers of our beloved alpacas that graze upon our land. My mother, friend, and friend's mother all help me hand knit items from our alpaca yarn. I also make felted items with our alpaca fiber; such as dryer balls, organic catnip balls, Peace Bears, etc. Our socks and gloves are machine knit and made by the New England Alpaca Fiber Pool in Massachusetts.

I chose alpacas over other livestock because they are docile, Earth friendly, and produce a wonderful, luxurious fiber that is soft, durable, and warm. Alpaca fiber is also naturally antimicrobial, moisture wicking, flame retardant, water resistant, and stain resistant. I currently raise both Suri and Huacaya alpacas because I love the different characteristics of both types of fiber. Little Creek Alpacas is a fiber farm that also sells fiber/pet alpacas and breeding stock alpacas. For more information on our alpacas for sale, please visit our website: www.littlecreekalpacas.com
