This sumptuous yarn is a luxury that you can afford. Made from rich alpaca, wool, cotton & bamboo sourced from the Peruvian Andes. The plush fibers come in a range of stunningly vibrant colors that are a delight to knit. The irresistible softness will provide garments with a unique touch that assures the best quality and its so lasting.
All this luxury comes with the extra benefit of knowing that you are contributing to supporting the children of Peruvian alpaca shepherds. The Mirasol Project, named after a little girl who helped tend a herd of alpaca near Lake Titicaca, was set up in 2006 by the Mitchell family. It aims to raise enough money through the sale of Mirasol yarns and wool to start to combat the extreme poverty these children face and help provide them with better futures. A portion of every purchase is dedicated directly to funding a school in the remote area of Munani in the region of Puno to educate the children of the shepherds.
