Alicia Adams Alpaca Inc. is a family business which specializes in the design and production of textiles and clothing utilizing the natural and sustainable characteristics of one of the rarest and most luxurious materials – alpaca wool. Under the auspices of a sister company, Adams Suri Alpacas Inc., Alicia Adams Alpaca Inc. raises and manages a herd of over 200 Suri alpacas at a beautiful farm in New York’s Hudson Valley, about 90 miles north of New York City. With about 80 acres of rolling meadows, dense woods, and lush ponds, the farm is also home to Alicia Adams and her family.
The alpacas at the farm are shorn yearly and their fiber processed into yarns for home wares and accessories as well as clothing for adults and children. All Alicia Adams Alpaca products are manufactured in the United States and in Peru utilizing the incredible handiwork of local artisans who continue the pre-Incan tradition of working alpaca fibers. In an effort to give back to them, Alicia Adams Alpaca actively supports artisan families and their communities.
Alicia and her family moved to New York in 2006 from Germany where they started raising and breeding Suri alpacas – one of the world’s rarest breeds. While her husband built the breeding business, turning it into one of the leading Suri breeding programs in the United States, Alicia embarked on creating Alicia Adams Alpaca in 2009. Raised and educated in Mexico, Europe and the United States, and with a background in fashion PR, Alicia adds an urban edge to her classic designs.
