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.
