Puna is the heart of the AMANO line of Peruvian yarns. The palette of melange colors and soft, plush hand make this a truly special yarn for next-to-skin garments and accessories.

The Carolina Shawl by Martha Wissing shows how truly delectable this yarn is and how beautifully it showcases pattern and cable work. Worked with 4 skeins of Puna on size 6 24-inch circular needles, the pattern is available for purchase on
