Apu in Quechua (the native language of the Incas) means Mountain God. The Incas believed that the highest mountains of the Andes were extensions of the Earth Goddess (Pachamama) and places separated for the most sacred rituals. For the Incas the finest alpaca textiles were comparable in value to gold and the finest jewelry. For Amano, Apu represents a gift from the Gods, the finest alpaca in the world.
Imperial Alpaca (17 mic) sorted and dehaired by hand and presented in its most natural state, raw white.
