Did you know alpaca has the widest range of natural colors in the world? Eco Puna Black represents AMANO's strong desire to preserve this unique, strong black color. With the black edition of Eco Puna, AMANO aims to support the Andean communities in the breeding of alpacas with pure black ﬁber in an effort to re-establish this population, which has dropped dramatically, to the point that it accounts for only 0.03% of all alpaca ﬁber. A very special, luscious fiber.
Martha Wissing has showcased this fabulous yarn in her Karina Fingerless Mitts which use 3 balls of Eco Puna Black and sizes 3 & 5 dpns. The pattern is available for purchase on ravelry.com.
