Sass::SyntaxError: Undefined mixin 'mixin_name'

I'm working on a Rails 4 project where I'm using Sass and Sass's @import to combine multiple css into one. It works fine but not if I use a new partial for mixins (_mixins.css.scss) and @import this in main.css.scss only and use mixins any other file which is added after that _webapp.css.scss

@import "bootstrap/bootstrap";
@import "responsive/mega_menu";
@import "responsive/mixins";
@import "responsive/webapp";

Rails Precompilation process is unable to found "responsive/mixins" and gives error in _webapp.css.scss

Sass::SyntaxError: Undefined mixin 'mixin_name'. here mixin_name is defined in responsive/mixins

The order of your imports might be the problem. If "responsive/mega_menu" is calling for that mixin(mixin_name) then you're going to get an error.

That is not the problem in my case.
