Alpaca - The Natural Fashion!

Specializing in high-quality fashionable alpaca clothing and products. We make our own Extreme-Weather Alpaca Hats right in our Farm Store. This is a feature with our many farm tours! Mesmerizing!

About Our Store

We manufacture extreme-knit hats using natural alpaca fiber on our commercial circular knitting machine. They are made in a double thickness for extra warmth for those severe winder conditions. Skiers, hunters, gas well workers, coal miners and students walking frigid campuses enjoy light weight and thick hats. First Come – First Serve! We currently have natural white, hunter (blaze) orange, rose gray, black and now “Steeler Gold” in large and x-large sizes. Other colors may be available soon. We are proud members of the “PA Preferred Program”. It is a state program that supports local business.

We love providing quality alpaca yarns, clothing and unique products to our customers. To see a joyful expression when a person models that “perfect” one-of-a-kind sweater is thrilling. There is nothing like the feel of soft quality in alpaca scarves, mittens, gloves and shawls. Our sock varieties are always in demand from the extreme-weather thick socks, sport socks, crew socks, to light weight colorful pants socks. Our Lodge Socks with slip-free snowflakes “walk off the shelf”! Wish we had a picture of each customer who stroked an alpaca bear for the first time – “Priceless!” Visitors, who are drawn to our variety of alpaca yarns, seem like kids in a candy store! Touching Is a Requirement! The colorful and warm jackets and vests for men & women are extremely popular when the weather gets cooler. New this year, distinctive “knitting pots” made by a local artisan is a must for people who knit and crochet.
