The Niagara Alpaca Shop
George and Diane's knowledge of alpacas and alpaca products is first hand including breeding, birthing, boarding, training, shearing and fiber preparation.
For over 20 years they have been involved with local, regional and national alpaca organizations. They deal with the major fiber cooperatives and international manufacturers. This experience has helped them select only the finest quality yarn and garments. The quality of alpaca products from the cooperatives and manufacturers has improved tremendously since the shop was opened in 2007. For example customers can now select from a wide variety of blends including cotton, silk, bamboo and nylon. This not only provides a price range in products but makes everyday items such as socks washable and more durable.
The Niagara Alpaca Shop has arranged for numerous artisans to supply the shop with hand made, hand dyed, hand knit and hand woven products. These items are very high quality and one-of-a-kind. The shop has also made arrangement for several regional textile mills to produce yarn and end products from their fiber. This has also been an exciting adventure.
Guests can now view the alpacas while holding the end products in their hands. Several new lines of clothing including the Kuna line have been added which adds to the offerings. Kuna is an international high fashion manufacturer. These products bring diversity and interest to the shop. With over 30 different kinds of socks and hundreds of other items there really is something for everyone! Stop by and try some on. You will be very happy you did.
Products you will find at Niagara Alpaca Shop Include:
Plus Alpaca Breeders of WNY (ABWNY) Socks made from alpaca fiber collected cooperatively from the Western New York farms.
