At a lusciously wooded farm nestled in the rolling meadows of New York’s Hudson Valley, one of the rarest and most luxurious textiles in the world—Suri alpaca wool—is produced and transformed into homewares, clothing and accessories. After moving to New York from Germany in 2006, Alicia Adams took her background in fashion PR and launched the brand Alicia Adams Alpaca in partnership with her family’s alpaca-raising and breeding business. On the 80 acres of land that a herd of 200 Suri alpacas call home, Adams began shearing the animals, processing the fibers into yarn and creating classic designs with an appealing urban edge. Years of local manufacturing, eco-friendly practices and artisanlike details have attracted notice, with Alicia Adams Alpaca arriving on Hyman Avenue this past winter. “Aspen is an exciting new home for us, and we’ve been thrilled to bring the warmth of alpaca into people’s homes, which should feel special and comfortable now more than ever,” says Adams. For the new season, shades of spruce and combinations of ivory and light gray are welcome additions to the Mazing bedding collection. Fashionwise, Santa Fe capes with long vegan suede fringe are a must for late-night outdoor dining and Rocky Mountain weddings. 601 E. Hyman Ave., 970.429.4244, aliciaadamsalpaca.com
