Eco Puna Black

Eco Puna in Quechua (the native language of the Incas) means natural mountains of the Andes. Alpaca has the widest range of natural colors in the world, including pure black. Eco Puna black represents Amano’s strong desire to preserve this unique beautiful black color.

Amano supports the Andean communities in the breeding of alpacas with pure black fibre in an effort to re-establish this population, called the Yanapaco (black alpaca) program, part of the Pacomarca Sustainable Alpaca network.
