Sunstone in Mirasol Usun is a Terra Cotta Orange or a old pumpkin orange  Pairs well with Citrine 106.

Usun is the Quechuan word for "cultivated land rich with organic materials" Mirasol knocks in out of the park again with this super soft yarn So soft that my go to favorite needles, the addi Rockets, are too slick for this yarn  I switched to ChiaoGoo Red Premiums, which are still metal, but with a finish that really hangs onto those super soft yarns.

Usuan is 92% cotton and 8% Polyamide It is a product of Italy.

It says to use a US 5-7 needle (3.75-4.50mm) I tested on my 5 needle, but could easily go down to a 4 needle Mirasol calls this a DK [ 3 ] weight, but personally I feel it works up better on a 4 If you are doing shawls and wraps 5 or 6 is fine But if you would do a baby receiving blanket, I think a 4 would do better.

This is perfect for any shawl or shoulder wrap  Adorable for summer cowls  And the babies!  Oh heavens yes!   Layettes, or little hats or summer T-Shirts  The sky is the limit.
