Alpaca Alternative Products

Alternative products are an eco-friendly alternative to items that you use on a regular basis. You may be wondering what this has to do with alpaca products. The answer to your question is everything! Alpaca fiber is an environmentally friendly fiber. So what if we used it to make household items? We’re one step ahead of you. Four Acres Living makes and sells dryer balls, felted soap, and shoe inserts.

What are they really made of?

Alpaca dryer balls? Alpaca soap? Alpaca shoe inserts? It sounds like a good idea but what are they really made out of? We’re here to tell you!

Our dryer balls are made on our farm with our own milled alpaca fiber. Made from 100% alpaca in all natural colors and wrapped with alpaca yarn they will last you for years. For a touch of extra luxury we even add a couple drops of lavender essential oil for a subtle fragrance. For our felted soap we use our own milled 100% alpaca fiber and felt it on to this incredible natural sea salt goat milk soap sourced from Old Colony Alpaca farm in nearby Maryland. It is made using natural sea salt dissolved in fresh goat milk from local farms along with natural moisturizing oils and butters. It's free of alcohols, detergents and harsh chemicals. Our shoe inserts are made of 100% alpaca fiber and provide both warmth and comfort.

Why should I use them?

Alternative products are not only better for the environment, but can also make your life easier. Using dryer balls instead of dryer sheets saves money in the long run because they can be used more than just once. Using felted soap instead of regular soap saves you money because the fiber wrapped around the soap makes the soap lasts longer than a regular bar of soap. The fiber also makes the soap easier to grip and hold onto in the shower. Shoe inserts can be used repeatedly and can add another layer of warmth as well as extra cushion for your feet.

Alternative products are better for the environment, make your life easier, and can also save you money in the long run. At Four Acres Living we make our products from our own alpacas and ensure that they are made to last for many years to come. Alpaca fiber is eco-friendly and non allergenic making it the perfect alternative for everyday household items.
