About Us


Butternut Alpacas was founded in 2000 by Penny Hartz in Danbury, CT and has since made its way to becoming a highly recognized Boutique Alpaca Clothing Store. She jumped into the business by purchasing some alpacas and bred them for their high quality fiber. Since then she has moved into just selling wonderful products made with alpaca. 


Known as the "fiber of the gods", we believe that alpaca fiber has so many benefits that are not found in today's clothing.
