About WellCriated

On Etsy since 2011

DISTRIBUTORS WANTED. Come to the Well. Relax, play and learn Fiber arts with our Alpacas.

Never thought much about art and creating things. I was always too busy climbing the healthcare corporate ladder. My right eye twitched while I drove 85 miles per hour on the freeway to work. Then, my husband's job moved us to Olympia, Washington. Ahhhhhhhh

Stumbling upon alpacas during a short vacation in the San Juan Islands was the beginning of a whole new life journey. After purchasing our first alpacas, we started breeding and selling them. As time went on, we started to collect a lot of fiber in our shed from shearing, so it was time to make products with one of the finest and warmest fibers in the world. We bought and sold products from Peru, but that didn't create a market for our own homegrown fiber.

I decided to try needle felting and loved it. But, I wanted to share the fun with everyone. That's when the idea of kits came to mind. No one else was making kits, just books on how to do it. So, the "Well Criated" products were born from "Alpacas at the Well".

    My husband Robert, daughter Sarah, 48 alpacas and I have "Criated" our little slice of heaven - Alpacas at the Well. Our products are "Well Criated" by the whole family. "Criated" is spelled this way as "cria" is a baby alpaca and that's SUPERFINE.

    Sarah designs and makes many of our prototypes, then helps with production. She also handles much of our printing guidelines. We couldn't do any of this without her. Thank goodness she's our daughter.

Welcome to Well Criated, the product line by Alpacas at the Well!

First thing's first... We are MORE than happy to take custom orders! Simply message or e-mail us, and let us know what you need. Some of our handmade products are unfortunately impossible to replicate exactly, but we can always come up with options for you to look at.

A little about our company...

We focus on three major things: Fashion, Decor, and Wellness products... all made with completely sustainable materials such as 100% all-natural Alpaca Fiber, and fabrics from upcycled clothes, blankets, and decor.

We believe strongly in promoting sustainability in all aspects of life, especially art and wellness. Sustainability is about much more than just what you eat, what kind of car you drive, and what kind of appliances you have in your home. Sustainability is about creating a home and a lifestyle that are resource and future-friendly. Which is one of the big reasons we chose Alpacas.

Alpaca fiber is a wonderful, sustainable material for fashion, decor, and all types of art. Grown locally in the USA, extremely eco-friendly, and as versatile as wool... Alpaca fiber has unlimited uses, and is perfect for anyone desiring a little more "green" in their life!

And please note, we only accept returns for items that are in their original condition.

CUSTOM ITEM REFUNDS: Unfortunately, we're unable to accept returns on handmade custom orders. Very small custom orders for greeting cards, for instance, can sometimes be refunded. But generally, custom orders cannot be returned, as they can't be resold.

AROMATHERAPY WARNING: Some aromatherapy scents are considered bad for pregnant women to inhale in excess. Our pendants are very mild in scent though, so they are safe for regular wear. But be careful with oils and aromatherapy if you're pregnant! Always consult a doctor before use. :)

WHOLESALE: Yes, we do offer discounts for bulk purchases! Please e-mail and ask.
