Lhasa Wilderness Yarn

Reviewed by Audrey Huggett


As a knitter, one of the things that I love most is experimenting with new yarns and fibers.  Wool is a stand-by favorite, don’t get me wrong, but there’s nothing quite as exciting as seeing what you can make a new yarn do for you.  When I discovered the Bijou Basin Ranch line of yarns, spun from yak down, I was absolutely delighted, and, naturally, couldn’t wait to get it on my needles.

The Lhasa Wilderness line of yarn was my first choice of yarn.  It’s a blend of fibers (75% yak down and 25% bamboo) that I hadn’t had the opportunity to work with before—not that I get many opportunities to work with yak at all.  My sample skein was a gorgeous turquoise blue, perfectly suited for a lacy scarf or a fine pair of fingerless mitts. I can’t rave enough about this luxurious yarn.  You can tell that it’s special before you even start to unwind it.  

The fibers are perfectly balanced to create a soft, durable yarn.  I typically expect hair yarns to have a bit of a halo, but the bamboo seems to keep the yak fiber in check; this yarn is a liquid smooth yarn.  My sample swatch knit up like a dream.  I haven’t quite decided what the final form of my Lhasa skein will be, but I honestly can’t wait to cast on (I just have to make up my mind).  This line of yarns is of a quality that will never go out of style.  I can easily see myself wearing whatever I make with this yarn years from now.  From what I’ve seen, the Bijou Basin Ranch yarns are an exceptional bunch, not only because of the yak down.
