SOW #13: Mirasol-icious

It’s time for lucky number 13, folks, and this time, it’s on some pretty stellar stuff. From Monday, August 23rd through Sunday, August 29th, our Sale of the Week is awesome – we are offering 25% off of 4 fantastic yarns from Mirasol.

The philosophy behind the Mirasol Project is very simple: it supports local communities in Peru through the sales of the Mirasol Yarn Collection. Peru’s heritage and culture of textile artistry is rich and ancient. The Mirasol Yarn Collection includes yarn made from the animals tended by these communities for generations in the Peruvian highlands. By purchasing the Mirasol Yarn Collection you are supporting the shepherds and their families ensuring the continuation of this tradition. A portion of every purchase goes directly to the funding of a centre in the remote area of Munani in the region of Puno.
