heritage and culture of textile artistry is rich and ancient. Located high
in the oxygen-starved sierra of the Andes Mountains of Peru near Lake Titicaca,
the Mallkini Ranch was established to breed alpaca herds. The owners, Michell
and Company, have always had the well-being of their employees uppermost
in the running of the ranch. With this aim in view, they have sought a
way of supporting their employees in the long term: the Mirasol Project
The objective of the Mirasol project is to improve the well being of rural
children in the highlands of Peru. It does this by taking a percentage
of every sale of Mirasol Yarn and investing it towards the establishment
and running of a boarding-house for local children centre in the remote
area of Munani in the region of Puno.
