Mirasol

Our sumptuous yarns are a luxury that you can afford. Made from rich alpaca, wool, cotton and bamboo sourced from the Peruvian Andes, our plush fibres come in a range of stunningly vibrant colours that are a delight to knit with. The irresistible softness will provide garments with a unique touch that assures the best quality so you will never want to wear anything else. And it’s so lasting, you’ll never have to!

And 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 Michell 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 (visit www.mirasolperu.com).
