Alicia Adams Alpaca – A Family Endeavor in New York’s Hudson Valley Yields Coast to Coast Luxury.
Alicia Adams’ luxurious Alpaca throws, pillows, mittens, sweaters and scarves can be found in boutiques from coast to coast. However, it is on the 80-acre farm in New York’s Hudson Valley, that she and her family raise a herd of 200+ Suri Alpacas, one of the rarest breeds in the world. The Adams family moved to New York in 2006 from Germany. Raised and educated in Mexico, Europe and the United States, with a background in fashion PR, Alicia launched Alicia Adams Alpaca in 2009. At the same time, Alicia’s husband Daniel focused on building the breeding business, turning it into one of the leading Suri breeding programs in the United States.
The fashion world has embraced alpaca because of the fine silky feel (soft as cashmere) and its lightweight, durable, and hypoallergenic qualities. Alpaca also comes in 24 shades of naturally occurring fiber, from white to gray and brown to black. Suri Alpacas were first imported into the United States from Bolivia in 1991. Alicia Adams products are made in the United States. www.aliciaadamsalpaca.com
