Apu in Quechua (The native language of the Incas) means god of the mountain.
For the Incas, the finest alpaca textiles were just as valuable as gold and jewelry. For Amano, Apu is a gift from the Inca gods: Sorted and dehaired by hand, Apu (17 mic.) is made of the finest and most luxurious alpaca in the world.
