AMANO Mayu is dip-dyed in Peru imitating a dyeing technique used by the Incas. An ethereal yarn is born! So soft and luxurious with rich colorways, Mayu is a treat to knit with and a delight to wear.
Two skeins of Mayu and size #3 needles create the beautiful Nalu Mitts by Leila Raabe that are soft as a cloud with stunning stitch definition. The pattern is free on ravelry.com.
We also love our mauve Paulina Cowl which takes two skeins of Mayu and the creamy ivory Jimena cowl that can be worn as a loop or doubled into a cowl with 4 skeins. Both patterns are by Martha Wissing and are available for purchase on ravelry.com.
