Chakana Sky Alpacas is a place for raising alpacas that honors the heritage of the indigenous peoples and animals of the Andean region, exists in harmony with our native land and its wildlife and provides sanctuary to those in need. The chakana cross has been interpreted by many as a symbol that maps the organizing principles and mythologies of ancient Incan culture. Alpacas and llamas were an essential part of this world. For this farm it is a simple symbol of balance and connection of all things over time. With this in mind, our name was born one crisp Autumn day in 2015, looking across our hillside farm to a hawk riding the wind across the serene blue and white sky. Chakana Sky is that feeling. We are a small farm, committed to responsible breeding and care of our alpacas to provide exceptional animals, fiber products and services that meet the needs of our customers and friends. Come join us on our journey!

 

We sell a variety of knit alpaca clothing accessories like hats, scarves, gloves/mittens, socks and felted boot inserts. We also have fine yarn made from our animals fiber at a small mill here in CT. We are a vendor at local farmers markets, holiday markets and special events. Our favorite events are our own open farm weekends in June, September, and November where visitors can interact with the animals, enjoy the ambiance and browse in our farm store. The farm is open for scheduled events and private visits by appointment.
