Apu in quechua (the native language of the Incas) means mountain god. The Incas believed that the highest mountains of the Andes were extensions of the earth goddess (Pachamama) and places separated for the most sacred rituals. For the Inca, the finest alpaca textile were comparable in value to gold and the finest jewelry. For Amano, Apu represents a gift from the gods. The finest alpaca in the world.
