The Minerva dress by AYNI is an incredibly soft, long and elegant dress. It has flared long-sleeves and a split on the side. Very comfortable because it is made of Alpaca, which is very soft! This dress is hand knitted by communities in the Cuzco region in Peru, under healthy and good conditions.
Composition: Alpaca, cotton (66% baby alpaca and 34% cotton)
Baby alpaca is an exceptionally fine, incredible soft, lightweight, durable, hypoallergenic fiber which comes from the back of the adult alpaca (not a new born alpaca), the only part that does not get contaminated by dirt. They are gently shorn by hand and only once a year during the warmer season.
The best method, recommended as the best choice, is hand washing. This because wool products can shrink if the temperature change. So the greater the temperature change and/or agitation, the greater the risk of shrinking and felting. A delicate wash and lower temperature setting is generally less risky. Dry flat, do not tumble dry.
AYNI is a Peruvian turn of phrase, meaning “today for you, tomorrow for me.” With this in mind, the brand integrates sophisticated Danish design with a production model that promotes conscientious living through exclusive high-quality Peruvian materials and ancient handcrafted practices to achieve a quality that is superior to industrially made products. More than 50% of the collection is handwoven by different communities in Peru.
