Holiday Gifting, BBR-Style

The countdown has begun, and we’ve got you covered for all of your gifting needs this holiday season!

Our Asbury Mitts Kit in Steel was a the top of Vickie Howell’s expert picks for holiday shopping on Knitting Daily. They’re a great present for your knitting pals, or you can gift the finished mitts to that special someone on your list!
Bijou Bliss was included in Kristin Omdahl’s gift guide for Crochet Me; it’s a great choice for anyone who appreciates natural fibers. There are plenty of  giftable patterns using just 1-2 skeins of Bijou Bliss, including this month’s Mystery KAL project.

L-R: Bijou Bliss in Amethyst, Long's Peak 3 in 1 Mittens by Marly Bird, St. Germain Hat by Thea Colman.
We also have a brand-new 100% Yak Yarn Wrap that's been a hot seller at shows. This luxuriously soft yet durable woven wrap from our new ready-to-wear line of apparel is a great gift for a loved one. Best of all, there's no assembly required!
Stay tuned for more great ways to make merry this holiday season (there may even be a visit from Santa Yak!).
