Win Yak Yarn from Bijou Basin Ranch to Make Your Own Entwined Cabled Hat!
This week we're giving away 3 hat kits from Bijou Basin Ranch! As seen on episode 810, Eunny demonstrates the cabled brim of the Entwined Cabled Hat made with Bijou Basin Ranch "Lhasa Wilderness" yarn, a combination of yak and bamboo that has great stitch definition and comes in vibrant colors. The Entwined Cable Hat (a free pattern download on KnittingDailyTV.com) uses two skeins of the "Lhasa Wilderness", and we're giving three lucky winners two skeins to knit their own hat.
Never knit with yak fiber before? You're in for a treat! Watch Episode 810's How To Segment with Deborah Robson and Eunny Jang to learn about the qualities of yak fiber, why it's the perfect yarn to hand dyes, and also how to knit the unisex Entwined Cabled Hat.
With the new ways to seperate yak fibers, Bijou Basin Ranch offers a variety of equisite yak down yarns that are both durable and soft. Yak fiber is not damaged by bleaching or dyeing, so you can get this fiber in a variety of natural and hand dyed colorways. The "Lhasa Wilderness" yak and bamboo blend comes in 20 different colors, which you can see on Bijou Basin Ranch's website. The yak fiber when blended with bamboo has a subtle sheen, is easy to knit with, and yet has the warmth that yak fiber offers. Plus, you get the unique look of handdyed yarn, with the subtle varigations even in the bright colorways.
