This was one of my favorite parts of our 9 day trip to Peru! I am so grateful for the women at Andean Colors who taught us the brilliant art of harvesting and dying materials to make the most beautiful textiles ever! Additionally, we got to feed the llamas and alpacas, AND hold the Guinea pigs. Their store is perfect for authentic gifts that support an amazing cause. I implore EVERYONE staying in Cusco make the trip to meet and learn from these amazing women!!

This was the most heart warming experience in Urubamba. The ladies that run this organization are extremely nice, and are willing to show you their culture and animals for no charge.

They let you feed and pet their alpacas, llamas, and cuy's, as well as they teach you how to make clothing out of 100% organic alpaca fur.

I recommend to bring money to purchase their clothing items, because they are so beautiful and the proceeds go towards helping single mothers.

It was a very pleasant and fun experience. Not only the animals are always wonderful to see, they have a "pet" alpaca which you can touch, pet, carry and play as you please while there. Besides seeing the animals and feed them (alpacas, llamas and guinea pigs), they also have a presentation on how they do all by hand, including the colors and the tinting, the washing and the soap, all natural, nothing wasted and all high quality. You learn about "baby alpaca" wool, how to differentiate between acrylic and the real thing etc. But for us the most satisfying part was meeting Hilga and her family, the woman that put all this together to help herself from domestic abuse and to help others in her situation. They live off the land and at the same time help countless women and families all over rural places in Peru, to make a living off their work without the abuse of husbands, store owners and such. We were there right after opening from the devastating results of COVID so they didn't have much merchandise, nonetheless they had beautiful crafted ponchos, runners, sweaters. We were impressed and we were touched. This is a beautiful way to learn about animals, the area and at the same time help those less unfortunate than us. We highly recommend visiting this community.

We hired a taxi to drive us here and back from Urubamba. After being in Cusco and being bombarded by folks trying to sell us mostly the same goods from China we found this place when we were looking online trying to find local yarn to buy. Everyone at the farm was incredibly friendly and we were able to feed the alpacas and the llamas while learning about the process of cultivating wool and creating products on site.

The tour was free and they were adamant that they did not have any expectation that we buy anything from them which was such a breath of fresh air after being

Really wonderful and authentic experience. We got to feed the aplacas and lamas before we were sat down for a great meal, guinea pigs! They were delicious and apparently the best compared to restaurants. We had potatoes and sauce on the side and also muna tea. After our meal we got to see and experience the alpaca wool cleaning and colouring. After that we enjoyed the gift shop and got a lot of products for a great price. It was more meaningful to by alpaca products from them, as we see the process and story behind the making.

This is the best way to support the community as the women working there are from difficult backrounds. We were touched by the companys story and how it all began.

Definitely one of the most interesting and important things we did in Peru.

I had a lot of fun visiting Andean Colors. I was inspired by Hilda’s story and her passion to help single mothers and young women to make a living by weaving beautiful sweaters and many products using alpaca’s wool. I learned about the process of turning wool into sweaters, scarfs, and many products. Hilda and Marci were great hosts. They allowed us to pet their alpacas and llamas. I enjoyed my visit and highly recommend to other visitors.

I found out about the Andean Colors alpaca farm thanks to a sign on the road coming back from Maras while I was staying a week in Cusco. I gave a call beforehand to check it was open to visitors and how to get there and I received a very warm welcome: tips for transportation, feeding of the lamas and alpacas, greetings from Bebita (picture below), explanation on the dyeing process… I felt very privileged to share this hour and a half with the owner and workers and to have been able to experience this on my own.
I strongly recommend to do this experience on your own ;)

This was an amazing experience for us. My family and I went to this incredible place just for taking the kids to feed the llamas and alpacas, but we found a beautiful and cozy farm and proyect guided by Hilda and Marcos. This 2 people treated us really kind and they were very welcoming with us and the kids. This is not only an Alpaca’s farm, they make all this amazing alpaca fabrics and Hilda designs are unique and really lovely. She is the leader of Andean Colors, witch is a foundation that helps local women that are single mothers or have been suffered from house domestic abuse. So all the clothes they make with the alpaca fabric helps this women to keep foward.
Hilda and Marcos were so kind with us, i will always remember this as a place full of joy, love and vibranting colors!

A lovely surprise stop in the Sacred Valley. We just happened to see their sign on the road and turned into the road to check it out and see some Alpaca and Llamas. We got that and much more. Maritza was super welcoming. She helped us feed and meet the animals, then she gave us a full demonstration on the traditional processes of working with natural Andean fabrics. This organization employs women in need. Please visit them and support their cause, you will enjoy it and learn lots.

I had a lovely visit to Andean Colors with my 3 year old and 9 month old. We took a bus out from Urubamba and received a warm welcome. My toddler enjoyed feeding the alpacas and running around with Hilda and Marco’s 4 year old son. I enjoyed learning about the process of making wool, dying it with natural products, and turning it into beautiful products. Hilda was so lovely with my baby and showed me how to tie him on my back. The hardest part of course was choosing what to buy when everything is so beautiful! I definitely recommend a visit.
