The Mirasol Project

Mirasol Yarn came into the shop over the past few months and while it is lovely and knits up nicely, it is a yarn that contributes back to the Peruvian community where it originates.

Peru’s heritage and culture of textile artistry is rich and ancient. The Mirasol Project supports local communities in Peru through the sales of the Mirasol Yarn Collection, which includes yarn made from the animals tended by these communities for generations in the Peruvian highlands.

By purchasing it you are supporting the shepherds and their families ensuring the continuation of this tradition. A portion of every purchase goes directly to the funding of a centre in the remote area of Munani in the region of Puno.

In fact, click below to see the video slideshow of the community that this is helping.
