This is a crochet cropped sweater with long flared sleeves and a black, white and tan pattern design. It is hand knitted by communities in the Cuzco region in Peru, under healthy and good conditions. A warm and soft sweater, perfect for cold days. Wear it casual with a skirt or pants.
Composition: Alpaca blend (89% alpaca, 11% polyamide), natural colour dyes.
The Peruvian alpaca is a noble creature, with a smooth and elegant walk, member of the south American dromedaries. It inhabits the high andean zone, 3800 m above sea level. They are gently shorn by hand and only once a year during the warmer season.
You only need one alpaca to make up to five sweaters, while it takes four goats to produce sufficient cashmere for a single sweater.
Total length: 16”

The best method, recommended as the best choice, is hand washing. This because wool products can shrink if the temperature change. So the greater the temperature change and/or agitation, the greater the risk of shrinking and felting. A delicate wash and lower temperature setting is generally less risky. Dry flat, do not tumble dry.
AYNI is a Peruvian turn of phrase, meaning “today for you, tomorrow for me.” With this in mind, the brand integrates sophisticated Danish design with a production model that promotes conscientious living through exclusive high-quality Peruvian materials and ancient handcrafted practices to achieve a quality that is superior to industrially made products. More than 50% of the collection is handwoven by different communities in Peru.
