Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Located in the Peruvian Andes, the Mallkini Ranch breeds alpaca herds. Seeking a way of supporting their employees long term, the Mirasol Project was established to invest in the establishment and running of a boarding house for local children.

Jane Ellison has designed a collection of 25 glorious garments, all knitted in the sumptuous, soft yarns. Simple shapes, ranging in skill level, with creative stitch patterns and original designs come together to produce gorgeous knits.

From a chunky turtleneck sweater and moss-stitched mittens to a cosy bobble hat and wrap-around cardigan, each pattern is accompanied by lush photography, clear instructions and a chart indicating how the designer has modified the original pattern.

Features 25 stylish hand-knit projects using soft luxurious Mirasol yarn, derived from alpaca, baby llama, fine merino wool and silk. The designs look more complicated than they are, cleverly employing simple stitches aimed at knitters of all skill levels.
