Our signature tube yarn in a luxuriously chunky composition made from 50% babyllama wool and 50% highland wool. The Mechera handknit yarn is both hypo-allergenic, biodegradable, naturally antibacterial, self-cleaning, and exceptionally warm. It is also highly durable and extremely breathable - the essential combination you want for your favorite knitwear.
The llama wool naturally comes in a wide range of deep, beautiful shades, which is why all the color options for the Mechera yarn are pure and completely undyed - a testament to nature's own color palette.

50% babyllama wool and 50% highland sheep wool – straight from the Bolivian highlands.
The story of our highland wool blend is also the story of friendship. Like trusted partners braving the rough mountain climate together, the llamas and highland sheep cozily graze alongside each other in the Bolivian highlands during the day, and the evolved composition of their wool perfectly complements each other. The addition of highland sheep wool adds a wonderful lightness to the product, as well as a gentle off-white hue due to the natural color of the sheep.
Washing is not always necessary and it is hard on your garment and on the environment. Wool is a self-cleaning fiber that requires less washing than other materials. To save resources, simply air your garment for a fresh start.
However, if you do wish to wash your garment, we recommend hand wash, 30 degrees, using high quality wool soap such as Eucalan or Sonett. Let the garment soak in water for 10-15 min. Rinse in 30 degree water. Avoid twisting, pressing or squeezing the water out and let the garment dry flat. Steam on medium temperature for a nice finish.
If you have a very gentle washing machine it is possible to wash your Aiayu garment in the machine on a wool program 30 degrees, low cycle. However washing in the machine is at ones own risk, as we cannot guarantee the individual program settings on washing machines.
