Sandollar Farms & Alpacas has moved its farm store to 9 W Kennewick Ave. in Historic Downtown Kennewick, WA. This location in the heart of Washington State's wine country is just a few short blocks from the Columbia River where the newest Urban Winery is under construction.
Our on-site farm store opened on National Alpaca Farm Days (NAFD) weekend in 2006 and we have never looked back. This year is our 10th anniversary! Today the store is open Wednesday through Saturday from 11am - 4pm, or at other times by appointment, just call Collins at 509-378-5833.
Visitors can browse a unique assortment of items created from Sandollar Farms & Alpaca's own locally grown and harvested, award winning herd sporting the most luxurious suri alpaca fleeces; as well as those products imported from some of the finest manufacturers in Peru. In addition, Collins' open leather studio is there where customers can shop the latest in custom gun leather and artifacts.
In 2010 we introduced our Extreme Warmth sock line which includes a double soled alpaca sock designed for extreme temperatures; it is suitable for skiers, fishermen and hunters, as well as farmers heading out on one of those cold morning treks out to the barn. In 2011, we introduced our Heirloom Luxury alpaca blankets that will last a lifetime. In 2013 we introduced our custom designed and knit alpaca hats with yarns from our own herd. We also stock a wonderful supply of the softest alpaca roving, fine yarns and bump yarns (for rugs) year round for all of your treasured projects. Our 2016 harvest of new rovings and batts arrived in May, 2016 just in time for the move!
In addition to these wonderful alpaca products, Collins Griffith is an extremely talented leather and fiber artisan. An assortment of his hand tooled leather accessories is always on display, and orders are taken for custom designed products. In 2007 he introduced leather items with an alpaca motif and he now plans to embellish our felted designs with leather accents. Today, you can find one of a kind, beautifully hand tooled sleeves for an insulated coffee mug (included); photo albums, director chairs, beverage coaster sets, and many more. Check out some of his products while you browse our website at www.TheLeatherAlpaca.com! And if you can dream it, Collins can make it! Call us today at 509-378-5833 and let us design something unique for you!
We recently invested with two other partner farms, Uber Alpacas (Yakima, WA) and Tres Aguas Alpacas (Benton City, WA) in the new needle "Feltloom". We have plans to make all types of custom felted products for our customers and will start small with purses, laptop bags, cell phone cases, etc. and move on into wearing apparel. And as the new year began, we took possession of our new automated felting roller machine...it takes the drudgery out of wet felting!
