Amano Apu is a luxurious 100% alpaca yarn. Exceptionally soft, Apu is has been left undyed in a natural soft white ivory. It's just crying out to be knitted or crocheted into shawls and accessories.
Apu in Quechua means Mountain God. The Incas believed that the highest mountains of the Andes were extensions of the Earth Goddess (Pachamama) and places separated for the most sacred rituals. For the Incas, the finest alpaca textiles were comparable in value to gold and the most exquisite jewellery. For Amano, Apu represents a gift from the Gods, the most beautiful alpaca in the world.
