More About Mirasol Yarns
Mirasol Project was born with the dream of providing better education and opportunities to students from the Peruvian Highlands.
The idea behind Mirasol Project is simple: To support the children of communities in Munani, Neque Neque and Mallkini in Puno with their education through the Mirasol School, with the sales of the Mirasol Hand Knitting Yarn Collection and donations from friends and other contributors.
Mirasol yarns are the ultimate in affordable luxury. Made from a rich variety of fibers sourced from the Peruvian Andes, these plush fibers are irresistably soft and come in a range of gorgeous, vibrant colors
