Amano Yana XL
Yana XL is Yana, only blown–up to super chunky weight. Yana in Quechua (native language of the Incas) means “black”, because we believe our black sheep definitely stands out from the flock. Yana XL is 100% hand–sorted 21.5 micron Peruvian highland wool, developed and spun in an extremely soft and light-as-andean-air structure.
Offering a bold visual companion to the Peruvian textiles that have been woven in wool in the highland of shades alongside a neutral palette, Yana XL is the (chunky) black sheep of the Amano family.
