Ayni in Quechua (The native language of the Incas) means exchange system.
Ayni represents the ancient Incan exchange systems, whereby textiles where often traded for goods high in the Andes. This concept inspired Amano to develop Ayni: The blend of super soft babyalpaca (21-23 micron) with shiny mulberry silk brings the sense of the Andean exchange in its cosiest form. Garments made from this luxury all-purpose-yarn are warm and drapey and will soon become your favourite.
The alpaca in Ayni is sourced in Peru, where Ayni is also spun and dyed. 4-ply weight.
