Mirasol Nuna Yarn
This sport weight yarn is made with wool from the animals bred by local communities for generations in Peru. You will love holding and working with this super-soft fiber with amazing sheen and spectacular color depth. Each yarn purchase supports the local Peruvian shepherds and their families ensuring the continuation of this tradition.
Peru’s heritage and culture of textile artistry is one of the richest in the world. It all begins in the highlands where Alpaca and Wool shepherds tender their animals in the Peruvian Sierra, growing the fine hair and wool that helps to create beautiful and soft yarns for hand knitting.
