Mirasol: Sweet Baby Llama!

Peru is having some dark days following the earthquake. On a brighter note, Peru' s heritage and culture of textile artistry is among the richest worldwide.

The Mirasol Project supports a school for local children of the shepherds who tend to the many animals in this region. Your purchase of this yarn helps support this valuable project. And the shepherds bring us yummy new yarns like these we've just received in the shop.

Miski ~ 100% Baby Llama (and feels like a dream)
Knits to a gauge of 4.5 sts/inch on US 8 and comes in colors of the Andes Mountains!!

Sulka ~ 60% Merino wool, 20%Alpaca, 20% Silk (sweet!)
Knits to a gauge of 4 sts/inch in US 10. Lovely colors and fast knitting...just my style.

Mirasol patterns have been designed by well know Noro designer, Jane Ellison. Her patterns are beautiful and offer a variety of garments for various skill levels. We have yarn for any size project-full bags available.

We'd be glad to have you stop by to see the yarn. Petting allowed.
