Playful yet classic, the RETINA is a charming pullover made from yak and Sartuul wool from the Mongolian steppe. The pattern is both simple and nostalgic, featuring alternating horizontal stripes in all-natural undyed neutrals. The ribbed borders on the bottom hem and cuffs provide textural contrast, as does the fisherman ribbing along the shoulder seams. Benefiting from the luxurious softness of yak fiber and the durability and warmth of Sartuul wool, the RETINA is sure to be a favourite for years to come.
The fit of this style is slightly cropped and boxy, but it does run true to size. We recommend choosing your regular size.

95% yak & 5% Sartuul wool from the Mongolian steppe. The fibers are sourced from the “Green Gold” project, a Swiss development program which organises cooperatives of nomadic herders in the Mongolian grasslands. The project helps herders preserve their traditional way of life through artisanal fiber production of heritage Mongolian breeds.
Washing is not always necessary and it is hard on your garment and on the environment. Llama 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.
