YAYA

Monday, November 30th, 2015

The Spanish have an old saying, “Wherever sheep’s feet touch the ground, the land turns to gold”  ... and even more so when those sheep happen to be merino.  The most luxurious of all and highly-prized since the Middle Ages, merino sheep produce a very fine crimped wool fibre with superior shine and anti-itch softness, which is also breathable and absorbent.  This season Mirasol introduces us to YAYA, a plumped-up premium spun merino wool that has undergone a special superwash process and will not felt.  Available at your lys in more than a dozen natural and heathered shades, Yaya is a big and bulky wool, so irresistibly plush with a velvety-smooth texture that you might just feel the urge to sink your fingers into each and every skein.
