Spring is near, can you feel it?
It is winter or is it not? Seems we cannot tell from one week to the next.
One thing we do know, we are ready for spring, but the cozy alpaca items keep me warm when the weather insists on winter.
Our open dates are quite limited this time of year and due to the mud and ice we are open by appointment only until the grass turns green.
Additional weekend and possible evening dates will be spontaneously announced on our FaceBook page.
We can accommodate special requests, send us a message or give us a call (607) 227-8458 and we may be able to open the store just for you!
Check out our Schedule Below. Plan your visit now!

Stock up on yarn!
In the spring your knitters love to stay busy, we have a large selection of 100% USA alpaca yarns. We stock handspun yarn as well as mill-spun yarn. Grab some for yourself or your favorite knitter/crocheter for some happy project time. I personally enjoy knitting with super-soft local yarns while the kids enjoy ball games and practice.
Super-soft and amazing rugs made from our fiber. Truly an indulgence. Worth every penny. 100% USA made.
Check out the socks that we have available at Monticello Mercantile in Monticello, Illinois!

While we build our customer base, we are giving away alpaca manure.
We do accept financial donations toward the care and feeding of the alpacas.
How was your garden this year? Consider using alpaca manure as fertilizer.
Manure can be added directly to the garden without harming your plants!
