Also a nice description of how the yarn is made and dyed using different plants, herbs and other materials to make different colors. Large shop with lots of beautiful... More

This was our first stop in Peru. We learned about the different types of llamas, alpacas, vicunas and guanaco. It was very helpful to learn about these animals early. Nice gift shop with many alpaca products. Also an attached Sol store that specializes in baby alpaca products. I would have liked to have had more time to shop after the... More

loads of great info.great displays, a opportunity to see a variety of camelids . they have a great presentation of how the animals contributed to the economy. A donation is the admission, with a huge gift shop with so many options to buy something really cool and fair trade

This place gives such a nice opportunity to interact with llama, alpaca and vicuna. Take the opportunity to feed them and enjoy the experience. The shopping at the end was unexpectedly nice as well.

This was a fun, quick visit to a working non-profit community (of about 300 families, I believe) farm that raises the animals for their wool (and milk), dyes, weaves, and sells the most beautiful tapestries I have ever seen. You can feed the animals, but don't expect them to be lovey-dovey, even if you have food. Either way, they're very... More

Educational and hands-on experience site as your learn about llamas and alpaca and and have the opportunity to feed them grasses. Caution on the hands-on, as a species they do not like being touched/petted and may spit at you. Can observe indigenous peoples weaving cloth and learn how they spun thread from fur. Small market sells native wares, as well... More

This living textile museum showcases weaving. You can learn about alpaca's, llama's, vicuna's, and guanaco's, and feed them alfalfa. Watch fleece being spun into fibers and dyed using natural methods. There is a store, gift shop, and snack cafe, as well as restrooms.

As other reviews have said, this should be a stop along the way to Pisac if you are fortunate enough to have the time and flexibility for experiencing the culture and how the textile products are made as well as feeding the llamas and alpacas!
