Featured Design: The Organic Mushroom designed by Hilary Hunt , and shown here knit in Mirasol Hapi by Raveler Cecile Berne, is available free from her purls of wisdom blog. Super fast to knit and a dream to wear in cosy, comfortable cotton, this trendy topper would make a brilliant gift. Grab a few more skeins and knit a matching Holy Cowl. Suitable for intermediate knitters, it features a simple lace stitch on big needles, is sized to fit the average woman and uses 1 skein for the hat or 3 skeins for the hat and matching cowl of Mirasol Hapi.
The Mirasol Project supports local communities in Peru through the sales of the Mirasol Yarn Collection. A portion of every purchase goes directly to the funding of a centre in the remote area of Munani in the region of Puno. This centre provides accomodations, meals, health-care and educational support to the children of the alpaca shepherds of Malkini Ranch. To find out more, visit www.mirasolperu.com.
