Knit using Mirasol Yarn Nuna an unbelievably soft and luxurious yarn. The fiber blend starts with extra fine Merino wool for a bit of bounce, adds mulberry silk for a lovely sheen, and then finishes off with a bit of bamboo viscose for drape!
Mirasol yarns are made in Peru to benefit the Mirasol Project – a group that strives to improve the lives of Peruvian shepherds. By purchasing Mirasol products, you are supporting the children of these shepherds and continuation of this ancient tradition. A portion of every purchase is dedicated directly to the funding of a shcool in the remote area of Munani in the region of Puno.
