Story Behind the Art:
Nestor Yana was born on August 29, 1964. He hails from the Puno region, situated in the Peruvian highlands, which are renowned for quality alpaca and sheep wool. He has been dedicated to the textile arts for more than 25 years; it has been a family trade for generations. Yana and his siblings learned the different weaving and knitting techniques from their parents. When he first began to weave, he worked on rustic machinery, which he and other family members built themselves. Together they sold their wares at local markets until eventually they were able to acquire modern machinery, which in turn allowed them to develop newer designs. Yana designs and creates a variety of garments, including cloaks, sweaters and ponchos; each piece showcases the unique attributes of alpaca wool. Because of their value, alpacas are carefully protected and they are shorn only once a year; each alpaca can produce enough fiber for up to eight sweaters. The Incas gave the alpaca an important place in society and religion; alpaca fiber was so highly treasured it was reserved for Inca royalty. Although alpaca wool is produced in less quantity per year than cashmere, it is considered a luxury fiber because it is as soft as cashmere and has the luster of silk. It is as durable as wool, and the fleece is extraordinarily light and warm, in fact it is reported that alpaca wool is five times warmer than sheep's wool. That's because the fiber is semi-hollow and curly, thus creating microscopic air pockets that are ideal for insulation. Any garment made with alpaca fibers is certain to preserve its appearance over time. The fashion industry considers alpaca wool to be one of the most exclusive of fibers. It is so versatile it is used in the creation of tweeds and fine gabardines. Alpaca fiber is naturally water resistant and wrinkles less than wool, which makes it ideal for travel. Compared to wool, alpaca fibers are stronger, resilient and of good elasticity.
