Amano Mayu is the ultimate in luxury knitting yarns. A unique blend of royal alpaca, cashmere and mulberry silk makes for a yarn that is incredibly soft and a pleasure to work with. The fibres have a beautiful sheen and fluid appearance, hence where the name "Mayu" comes from as it means river in Quechua.
Mayu is available in 14 tonal colours which are produced by dip dyeing, a process that imitates a dyeing technique used by the Incas.
Knitting patterns can be found for Mayu in Amano Pattern Book Vol. 1 & Vol. 2. It knits up to a DK gauge and will make stunning shawls, cardigans or luxurious accessories.
