New Mirasol yarns just arrived
Friday, 22 January 2016 | Admin
The philosophy behind the Mirasol Project is very simple, the Mirasol Project supports local communities in Peru through the sales of the Mirasol Yarn Collection.
Peru's heritage and culture of textile artistry is rich and ancient. The Mirasol Yarn Collection includes yarns made from the animals bred by these communities for generations in the Peruvian highlands. Without them we would not have this beautiful yarn.
By purchasing the Mirasol Yarn Collection you are supporting the shepherds and their families ensuring the continuation of this tradition.
The Mirasol colour palette really shines through with Sulka Nina, a merino wool, silk and alpaca blend that will feel like a dream on the needles! Mirasol Sulka Nina is a wool, alpaca & silk blend yarn in a sport weight. Sulka Nina has a delicate sheen from the silk content, and comes in a range of lovely, marled colors. Sulka Nina can be used for anything from lace shawls to lightweight sweaters. Made in Peru
Muted berries, and shades of the sea are gently joined by cinnamon and bark - it will be hard to decide between them!
