Yana in Quechua (the native language of the Incas) means “black”, because we believe that our black sheep definitely stand out from the herd. Yana is 100% hand-sorted in 21.5 micron mountain wool, and it’s pure joy in a single yarn.
Come with us on a journey through the coast, jungle and mountain tops of Peru. From ancient Inca cities such as Cusco, to the beautiful colonial plazas of Arequipa via our very own Sustainable Alpaca Project Paco Marca, these special edition hand painted colours echo the vibrant Andean and Peruvian identity of Amano Yarns. Available in 7 different colourways, all of which speak to the rich diversity of our landscapes and all painted on our favourite and softest roving yarn: Yana.
