Mayu in Quechua (the native language of the Incas) means River. This unique blend of royal alpaca, cashmere and mulberry silk has an incomparable softness and appearance. All colors are dip dyed, imitating a dyeing technique used by the Incas. The inspiration for colors comes from the soft landscapes of the Peruvian Andes Mountains.
