Introducing URKU, the cute and cuddly crocheted llama toy! This special llama was skillfully crafted using traditional crochet techniques by artisans in the province of Bolivar, Ecuador. Hand-crafted with passion and dedication, this plushie is sure to be an instant favorite for any child or adult who loves llamas! Additionally, made with wool scraps, each URKU llama toy is unique with its own combination of colors that are the results of the artisans' creative works of art.

URKU is much more than just a stuffed animal — it has deep cultural significance for the indigenous communities of the Andes. The name "Urku" translates to “mountain” in Kiwcha, the native language of these people. Llamas and alpacas are very important to the maintenance and protection of these moors, so this toy is a great way to honor that tradition. 

    URKU is seeking a new home, and with their adoption comes an official certificate.
