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.
