Up for grabs in our new competition are two skeins of Mirasol Sisa yarn, in this delicious indigo shade. Mirasol yarn is produced in Peru, and supports the children of the shepherds who attend to the animals in the Peruvian Highlands. Sisa is the Quechan word for flower or bloom, and this has derived from the Native American tribe, The Quechan.
The culture and heritage of Peru's textile industry has made it one of the richest in the world, and Mirasol Sisa yarns super-soft blend of wool and alpaca provides a luxurious feel.
This beautifully spun yarn is 60% wool and 40% alpaca, and contains soft hints of pink. Purchasing Mirasol products also helps towards the funding of a school in the remote area of Munami, in the region of Puno.
