Mirasol Umina

Mirasol Umina is a beautiful alpaca/wool blend in worsted weight yarn.  Make an awesome sweater or vest with this soft, luxurious yarn.  The yarn is especially wonderful for sweaters, vests, or anything you can create with worsted weight yarn.  Mirasol designs can be found here.

When you purchase this yarn, you do more than create a stunning project.  You support the local people who shepherd the stock and prepare the fiber that becomes the yarn you can enjoy.  The Mirasol Project was born with the dream of providing better educational and opportunities to students from the Peruvian Highlands.  To find out more, go here.

247 yards/100 Grams

Recommended Needle: US 7-9 (4.5-5.5mm)

Knitting Gauge: 16–20 sts per 4 inches

This yarn is insanely soft and buttery! It blooms beautifully, so you need a bigger hook than with most yarns that have this yardage per grams. 

Mirasol Umina begs to be used in garments that are right up next to the skin. Sweaters, cowls, mittens and hats would be absolutely amazing in Umina. Shawls and wraps would be stunning as well!
