Ushya Yarn by Mirasol description:
Ushya is a light, soft, bulky chainette wool blend. The chain construction serves to keep this yarn feeling as lofty and squishy as can be. This is a touchable, airy bulky weight yarn that is sure to keep you warm.
Ushya is part of the Mirasol yarn collection, which was created to support building and running schools in a rural, remote farming area of Peru. In particular, the foundation helps to establish school boarding opportunities for students who live far from school. The purchase of this yarn supports the schools through the non-profit Mirasol Project - a wonderful story to tell with each garment you knit from this wonderful yarn!
