Andean Colors is a great place to be educated on original manufacturing and textile production in Peru.
We were happy to support this local business and its amazing people.
The alpaca farm is also very impressive!

This was an awesome day tour through the sacred valley! Willian taught us so much about the history and culture of Peru. The alpaca farm was my favorite - learning about how to make alpaca sweaters and interacting with the animals. I highly recommend this tour!

Marco was gracious enough to accept our last minute tour request and we are so glad that he did. We had a wonderful day visiting Chinchero, Andean Colors (a company helping women in the area achieve financial independence), Moray and Ollantaytambo. Marco would have taken us to Maras and to lunch as well, but we decided to skip. At Andean Colors we had the opportunity to feed the llamas and alpacas and Maritza gave us an informative talk about the process of cleaning and dying the natural fibers utilized in many of their fabrics. It was great to meet her as well as Melanie and Ilda. Marco is a wonderful tour guide who is informative, professional, and leads you around the destinations with ease. We are so thankful to have had the opportunity to spend the day with wonderful company.

We stopped here as part of our Kaypi tour of the Sacred Valley. The members of this farm are very friendly, and allowed us to feed and take pictures with their llamas and alpacas.

Marco gave us a great, interactive presentation on how the alpaca wool is washed, spun and dyed, and then we had time to shop at their store.

Andean Colors has a wonderful social mission and produces high quality alpaca wool products.

Highly recommend this stop to other travellers in the region!

We had hired a driver to take us from Ollantaytambo to Cusco and to stop at a few sites along the way. He suggested this one when we mentioned textiles and we were delighted!

We fed the alpacas, saw the pigs and the pet cat and learned all about the wool collection process, how the it is spun and dyed and woven through a personal demonstration of the whole process. we learned what ‘100% baby alpaca” actually means, and how to tell real alpaca from synthetic. Tip: the inexpensive products marked alpaca in the large tourist markets are not real alpaca. They have absolutely stunning, high-quality products, either sheep or alpaca to choose from, also clothing, hats, gloves, socks, scarves, etc. We purchased a beautiful table runner for a very reasonable price that has brightened our home and reminds us of our time in Peru. One of our favorite stops while visiting the country!
