About Bucks County Alpacas
Established in 2004, Bucks County Alpacas is owned by neighbors Karin Giordano and Erica Tollini. Located on 2 properties in Bedminster Township, Upper Bucks County, we have specialized in the breeding and raising of Suri Alpacas. Over the past 15 years, Bucks County Alpacas has evolved into primarily an alpaca fiber business selling at local farmers markets. We sell Suri fiber, roving, yarn, alpaca yarn and blends, both natural and dyed colors. We carry alpaca products, hats, scarves, gloves, mittens and socks focusing on products produced in the USA, as well as a few fair trade products.
Alpaca is a luxury fiber, comparable to cashmere. Alpaca fiber is soft, 3 to 7 times warmer than wool and light weight. It is hypoallergenic, wicks away moisture and does not absorb odors like cotton fibers do.
A majority of our yarn is processed right here in Pennsylvania and is 70% Suri alpaca and 30% merino. The merino gives the yarn memory and comes in both Fingering and DK weights both come in 4 oz skeins. We also have a limited supply of 100% Suri and alpaca yarn in sport weight, along with some Suri rug yarn.
