I purchased a beautiful alpaca scarf at the shop. No, not super cheap, but excellent quality and certainly made with alpaca unlike the untagged items found on the street. Great selection.

Date of experience: December 2019

Our private guide Mariel recommended that we stop here to go through the museum on a visit to Cusco. The wall hangings were interesting, and I loved that the Sulca family is trying to preserve historical designs—which I think is important. It turned out that they offered the highest quality textiles that we saw on our travels through Peru. I am pleased with the Tocapu piece that I purchased there as an exact replica of a larger one hanging in The Smithsonian. If nothing else, I highly recommend a walk through the small museum section!

...and bought some things. Friendly people, not pushy and very nice quality. Kids enjoyed petting and feeding the alpacas.

Nice place where you can learn about textile art history and differents type of llamas/Alpagas... there is ! Free entrance, there is a shop but they dont pressure you to buy, which was really nice !
They also explain différents types of materials so you know who there is a différence between a sweat at 120 soles here and an other one a 40 downtown in Cusco !
Interesting !

Because we missed the visit to the Huiloc communities – a truck wrecked in our path – our guide opted for a stop at Sulca Textile, a museum and store where exact replicas of the pieces we saw at Museo Larco in Lima are housed. Like the originals, the tapestries on display are handwoven out of cotton – and nearly as breathtaking as the original textiles, all based on the work of the Paracas, Wari and Incan cultures to name a few. (Yes, they are for sale. And considering the fact they take months, some almost a year, to create, bargains at $2000 – $5000 for wall art.)

At Sulca, it is also possible to watch the talented weavers in action, making and dying the yarn and creating finished pieces for purchase: alpaca sweaters, accessories and blankets. Caveat emptor: outlets throughout Peru advertise “baby alpaca” goods that are really only “maybe alpaca.” Sulca is guaranteed bona fide. (We went, we saw, we purchased.)
