About Shalimar Alpacas

Olivier and Patricia and their two daughters join a passion for fiber with a passion for breeding beautiful, high quality alpacas. Their alpaca business began with a search for what to do with their six acres of land in upstate New York. The beauty of alpacas and the luxurious fiber they produced presented an ideal business opportunity for the Gillotins, building on their skill and experience with textiles. As both Olivier and Patricia come to the alpaca business with a strong professional connection to the textile and fashion industries.

With our direct involvement in the fiber side of the business, producing alpacas who possess the highest quality fleece is our primary goal. Our foundation herd was built using the most stringent breeding quality standards for fiber, conformation and even temperament.
