Our Story

Ever tried to flee earthquakes with alpacas? Not an easy mission, but that is what we had to do! Having moved to New Zealand for the dream lifestyle we found ourselves living through a nightmare in the epicentre of the deadly Christchurch earthquakes. When they reached 10,000 aftershocks we decided enough was enough, but by then we had acquired a few alpacas who simply couldn’t be left behind… 11,617 miles and now a herd of over 50 alpacas later here we are.

Why do we keep alpacas, Angoras and Shetland sheep?

Urcuchillay combines the magical fibres of three animals to create quality and luxury products in an ethical, professional and friendly way. We believe that each of our fibre producing animals brings a special quality to the end products we produce, as well as being fun and exciting to work with along the way.

We're social animals
