Have you heard of Bijou Basin Ranch? They are a small family owned and operated yak ranch in the Colorado outback, and they use those yak to create awesome yarn!
Our primary goal is to produce and sell high-quality fibers and yarns made with premium yak fibers and other luxury fibers. We raise registered, full-blooded Tibetan yaks that have superior glossy coats which are harvested annually. We also supplement the fiber we harvest from our yaks by purchasing quality yak fiber from other yak ranchers across the country and abroad.
Once they have produced their yarn, many are hand-dyed with care by the color experts at Lorna’s Laces in Chicago, IL. They also team up with other dyers. They currently have some beautiful gradients that have been dyed by ModeKnit Yarn, you can see them HERE.
You can find Bijou Basin yarn and fibers at many local yarn shops, on their website, and there is even some on Amazon, HERE! As you can see in the image at the top of this post, I played with some of their yarn. I used the Himalayan Trail, 75% Yak Down/25% Super Fine Merino to make the bracelet in the photo. This yarn would be great for high quality needlepoint as well. I enjoyed working with it, it’s soft, and the plies hold together nicely – it’s not splitty. Bijou Basin is one of out generous sponsors for Yarn and Wine 2016, so I’ve had the pleasure of being able to touch several of their yarns. Let me tell you, they are all very soft and the colors are fabulous. This is certainly a yarn that will bring some serious class to your stash!
You can find Bijou Basin Ranch over social media at:
Oh! And speaking of the Bijou Basin Blog, they posted an interview with me last week, you can read it HERE.
So, hop on over to the Bijou Basin site and class up your stash, my friends. 🙂
