|The Mirasol Project is a project to improve the future of disadvantaged children in
Peru and was set up in 2006. It is named after a little girl called Mirasol who helps
tend a herd of 3,000 alpaca at the Mallkini ranch high in the sierras of the Peruvian
Andes. She is one of the Quechua-speaking people of the Andes who are particularly
disadvantaged. Few of these people can read or write, their health is poor and there
has been no escape from the relentless poverty they experience until now.
|Mirasol Ushya Ushya is a super soft and fluffy yarn from Mirasol! This rich merino wool has just a touch of
nylon and is perfect for hats, scarves and other accessories, or adding feathery trim to coats and mittens.
