Peru’s heritage and culture of textiles artistry is one of the richest in the world. All starts in the highlands where Alpaca and Wool shepherds tender their animals in the Peruvian Sierra, who grow a fine hair and wool that helps to create beautiful and soft yarns for hand knitting.
The Mirasol Yarn Collection was created thanks to an initiative of various customers of Michell & Cia. Both hand knitting yarn distributors – Designers Yarns Ltd, Du Store Alpakka, Fil Diamond Yarn and Knitting Fever, along with Michell decided to work a unique yarn collection that could be distributed worldwide with the agreement that part of the sales of this collection, from both Distributors and Michell, will go directly to Mirasol. So back in August 2007 the first Mirasol Yarn Collection was launched with the corresponding pattern support designed by Jane Ellison.
Since then the collection is expanding each season, and today it includes a various luxurious qualities in both classic and fancy effects with trendy colour and with full pattern support by talented designers.
