Composition: 100% Alpaca.
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.

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.
