A sale to benefit the shepherd's children
Back in our Gift/Yarn store days one of the wonderful yarn lines that we fell in love with was the Mirasol project. The yarns were so high-quality and came in gorgeous colors. The pattern support was designed by renowned knitwear designer, Jane Ellison. And there is a human connection with this yarn... when you purchase this yarn you help children high in the Andes, whose parents tend to the alpaca herds of Mallkini ranch. Since then, the yarn and project has grown on us, and we wish to take the month of March to give the Mirasol Project the attention it deserves.
In this area of Peru, malnutrition and lack of education are a big problem. Children have to walk such a distance to even get to school that many do not attend. The Mirasol project has sought to better this situation by building dormitories and provide health care and meals for the children of the shepherds.
Since it's inception in 2005, the Mirasol Project has seen the construction of the dormitories and the implementation of health and education programs, but they still need your support. School, health and personal supplies, such as vaccines, toothpaste and books, are given to each student. Your purchase of these beautiful yarns will help with the continued success of the Project.
Please email me if you have any questions about the yarn or anything at all: email@example.com
The Mirasol Project has pattern support for every one of their yarns from knitwear designer Jane Ellison. From the Mirasol books you can find patterns for Men, Women, Children and your home.
