Alpaca and silk are a match made in heaven. They each bring something unique to this beautiful yarn; softness, drape and an incredible lustre. As a sport-weight yarn, Ayni is perfect for knitting shawls and cowls.
Ayni in Quechua means exchange system. This system of barter trade for products and services still exist in some Andean communities. For Amano, Ayni represents a unique blend of raw materials: Baby Alpaca and Mulberry Silk. The colour names were inspired by items still traded in Andean markets by the Ayni exchange system.
