This project was a couple of exciting “firsts” for me – it is knit with YAK DOWN, and it’s a felted wrap. Yak down is an amazing fiber…it is as soft as cashmere, warmer than wool, and more breathable than wool. And a bonus, this project is available in a kit! In the video (below), I cover the techniques used in the pattern – chart reading, spit splicing, and felting.
Bijou Basin Ranch is a Himalayan Yak Ranch in Colorado, and the yarn they produce is under the label Bijou Spun. They also make a soap for exotic fiber called Allure. Be sure to visit their website to see all of the different fibers and products they offer.
