The Privet House, a charming shop located on Rte. 45 in the center of New Preston, a bucolic village below Lake Waramaug is a wonderful emporium of home goods, antiques and curiosities. Just in time for the holiday season, the Privet House has partnered with Alicia Adams Alpaca from November 20- January 3. Alicia Adams Alpaca specializes in the production of alpaca wool ultimately woven or knitted into personal luxuries... from throws and blankets to capes and ponchos.
Alpaca is on the verge of being rediscovered as an under-the-radar luxurious
alternative to cashmere. Due to its longer fibers, it is actually softer, lighter and warmer than
cashmere, a commodity whose quality has declined with the price.
In addition to throws, blankets and pillows, Alicia Adams Alpaca turns out accessories and
clothing for men, women and children. All Alicia Adams Alpaca products are made in the
United States and Peru, where the firm actively supports artisan families and their communities
while preserving a pre-Incan tradition that worships alpaca wool as “the gold of the Andes”.
For the Privet House, it was an easy decision to feature this fabulous lifestyle brand that is dedicated to alpaca wool. Alicia Adams Alpaca is family-owned and operated and local to the Northeast. Best of all, it is a proponent of
artisans, that supports handmade products and goods as opposed to those that are mass produced. For more information on the Privet House visit their website.
