Welcome to Xanadu

Our newest addition to the Bijou Basin Ranch lineup is Xanadu, a luxurious 100% cashmere yarn available in 7 colors!
To create Xanadu, we used only the finest quality cashmere available - straight from the goat herds of Mongolia. What makes this yarn unique is that we haven't blended it with anything else: it's pure cashmere through and through!

Each skein of Xanadu boasts 400 yards in light fingering weight, which is enough to knit a variety of projects using just one skein. It's an affordable luxury which brings warmth, softness and all-around delightfulness to your next knitting or crochet project.
Xanadu 100% Cashmere Yarn in Gray
The first design to use our newest yarn is the Miya Shawl by Mari Chiba, and it uses just one skein of Xanadu to knit this gorgeous accessory! It's perfect for the changing seasons and easy to customize, making it longer or shorter as you prefer.
Now through September 30th, 2015 you can get free shipping on all domestic orders of Xanadu with the coupon code: MIYA.

Click here to purchase Xanadu yarn from our online store.

Miya Shawl pattern is available here on Ravelry.

Delta Hat KAL & See You at Stitches!

The Delta Hat is knit with just one skein of our Himalayan Trail yarn; this new design features a deco-style stitch motif on one side and a garter flap on the other to create an asymmetrical cloche-style hat.

The KAL will begin this Friday, August 7 in the Hands Occupied Ravelry Group and run through Monday, August 31!

We'll be kicking off the Delta Hat KAL at Stitches Midwest: designer Heidi Gustad will join us in the BBR booth for a Meet & Greet on Friday, August 7 from 10am-1pm! 

There will be lots of hat samples to try on & we'll have project kits available, too! Each kit will include:

  • 1 skein of Himalayan Trail yarn
  • 3 upcycled buttons from Balwen Woodworks
  • a print copy of the Delta Hat pattern
