Mirasol's fine yarns are a luxury you can afford. Made of super-quality wool, from ecologically grown animals alpaca, llama and vicuña, originating from Peruvian Andy, the yarn comes in a number of stunning vivid colors that are a pleasure for knitting. The irresistable softness will provide clothes with a unique touch that guarantees the best quality, so you'll never want to wear anything else. And all that luxury comes with the extra benefit of knowing that you are contributing for the support of the children of the Peruvian alpaca shepherds.
The Mirasol project, named after a girl who helped grow a herd of alpaca near lake Titicaca, was created in 2006 by the Michel family. Its goal was to raise money by selling yarn and wool to Mirasol to start fighting the extreme poverty these children face and help them ensure a better life and future. Part of each purchase is devoted directly to funding a school in the distant Munani district of Puno to educate the shepherd's children.
