Hello Berroco Fan!

As you may know, we at Berroco not only have our own brand of excellent yarn, but we also distribute yarns from a few select international companies. We like to share news from these friends with our readers to let you know about exciting yarns or patterns that you can see at your local yarn shops.

News from Amano Yarns! 

Amano Yarns is now in its second year, and the new pattern collection is gorgeous! When we received a copy of their Fall/Winter pattern book, I spent ages looking at the beautiful photography and imagining myself in the location.
Yaya Cardigan knit in Amano Yarns Colca (56% baby llama, 44% silk)
Pampa de Arrieros, near the southern coast of Peru, is a small place about 90 minutes northeast of Arequipa City. The photos for this pattern collection were taken at an abandoned train station. Sixty years ago, the town was a gateway to Arequipa for travelers arriving from the Highland mountains of Peru. Most of the area's inhabitants, about 300 in total, worked for the railroad or businesses related to it. The rail line closed, the town is now empty, and all you can find are abandoned and rusty wagons, old houses, the old train station, and the rail lines themselves. The mystique and romanticism of this ghost town appealed to the team at Amano Yarns as a photo shoot location; the colors reflected in the landscape fit perfectly with the vibrant, luxurious concept. 
Nina Cowl knit in Amano Yarns Mayu (60% royal alpaca, 20% cashmere, 20% silk)
The 16 patterns in this year's collection are shown to their best light in this stunning location. The pieces are imminently wearable—mostly accessories with a few garments and layering pieces here and there, making these pieces easily affordable to knit in a luxurious yarn.

Amano has two new yarns this season. Colca is a blend of baby llama and silk in a worsted weight yarn and provides incredible drape and softness. Colca is available in twelve gorgeous hues inspired by Peruvian textiles. If you're looking for a quick knit, look no further than Mamacha, a bulky weight blend of baby alpaca and merino fibers in saturated colors inspired by Peruvian fruits and flowers. Also new this season is Eco Puna—the same yarn as Amano Puna but in gorgeous, naturally undyed shades of 100% baby alpaca.
