Awa in Quechua (The native language of the Incas) means fabric, weave or knitted. This unique blend of Baby alpaca, Merino wool and Pima cotton has an exceptional and different look. It represents the thriving weaving and knitting traditions rooted in Peru dating back to pre-Inca times until modernity. The color chart of Awa ﬁnds its inspiration in the vibrant colors of the traditional Peruvian textiles.
Dye-lots have subtle variations that cause colors to vary from Lot to lot. As this is a natural part of the process, please note there may be differences between the yarn images shown and the yarn received. Therefore, we encourage buying enough yarn for the entire project at the same time.
