"Chullu" is the name for a type of indigenous Andean hat. Traditionally, Chullus are woven from llama or alpaca wool in colorful patterns,
and are distinctive for their long earflaps. Ch'ullu is the native name for this kind of a cap in the language of the Quechua tribe.
The same kind of hat is known as lluch'u in Aymara.
