The best strategic place with very friendly people
Jun. 2021 • Family
I and my family visited Andean Colors located just 5 minutes from the town of Chinchero, it is a very impressive place with a spectacular view of the sacred valley. It is a family business run by Marco, Hilda and their teenage children, as soon as we arrived at the place we were well received and they immediately showed us the animals such as llamas, alpacas and guinea pigs. We were very impressed with the way they work, we realized that they mostly work with single mothers, widows or in a vulnerable state, which was very interesting because the profits are shared and give them a great job opportunities. They use natural inks to dye the yarn, their clothing are really original and all are mostly baby alpaca and their prices are reasonable. They also raise guinea pigs where if you want to taste only communicate in advance and they will treated and will make you feel like family. Thank you very much Marco and family, we will not hesitate to send you our groups

A memorable stop!
Jun. 2021 • Couples
This is a wonderful out-of-the-way visit you won’t forget. This is an alpaca, llama and cuy (guinea pig) farm specializing in curating wool from their animals (not the cuy!). The couple were super friendly and knowledgeable, and took the time to teach us all about the types and processes of making the raw wool into colorful yarn. They also have a lovely store with a large assortment of items made from their self-spun and dyed wool. Both my husband and I found just the perfect item to take home. Definitely worth a stop!

Such an incredible experience. Marco was super nice and informative and showed us so many cool things. He was very friendly as was Hilda. She helped me find all the sizes and colors of the clothing items I wanted. I had a great time. The llamas and alpacas were cute. Also, the snow tipped mountains in the background made pictures super nice. I highly recommend.

Single mothers do the work arming for the animals, preparing the wool. A unique experience. The gift area has many items all made at the place.

Awesome place with an awesome cause
Jan. 2020 • Solo
I loved this place! The director of the place was very informative about the cause they were trying to promote (helping/empowering single mothers and decreasing the cost of organic), and the women showed us all the techniques of dying the wool. It was a beautiful place, and they were really hospitable. I also really enjoyed the llamas.

Authentic and Meaningful Experience in a Touristy Area
Dec. 2019
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

A great experience with even greater intent.
Yes you’ll learn and take pictures with llamas and alpacas... you’ll even get to feed them. You’ll learn all about how they create beautiful clothing with vibrant colors. But most of all, you’ll help single mothers become self dependent and support them in learning a trade... you’ll also get some REALLY nice clothing out of it.
If you get a chance, definitely give them a visit.

Day Trip Sacred Valley
Nov. 2019 • Friends
This was an interesting stop in our Sacred Valley Tour. Andean Colors is local and entrepreneurial community, where they showed us the amazing process of how real aplaca wool is made. Their scarfs, sweaters, backpacks, are made with the best quality and produced locally, great souvenirs!

Thanks to the hard working and friendly staff !
