Alpaca felt - where to sell it?

My mum has two alpacas and has just had the fleeces spun with the remnants made into felt. There are 12 large pieces (1 x 0.5m approx)and 8 are brown, 4 white. She is hoping to sell them on the internet, and I've had a look on ebay and was just wondering whether any of you bought/sold such things on other sites? Also, does anyone know what sort of price pieces like this might go for?

TIA

Are there any local spinning/weaving/dyeing guilds? They always have a good idea on how much these things normally cost or you could ask these lovely people for advice.

Can I ask where your mum had her fleeces spun please? I have 3 Wensleydale fleeces to process and wondered if there was a company which would spin them ?

Also, envy at alpacas.

wow sounds great - you could list them on folksy or etsy as lots of people shop for supplies there too.

I would be willing to buy some of the felt, Machu.
