Step into spring in the Andes with Chaski, a beautiful new blend of pima cotton and superwash merino wool from Amano. Chaskis were very important messengers of the vast Incan empire, often running hundreds of miles to deliver gifts and messages. Amano honours their legacy with their first fingering weight yarn.
This blend has been specially developed using the softest pima cotton, which is springy and structured, mixed with superwash merino wool. Easy knit and easy care, it can be machine-washed repeatedly without losing its softness. Perfect for all your lace and fine-knit creations.
