Yarn provided for review & giveaway by Bijou Basin Ranch. Opinions are my own.
The Yarn: Bijou Basin Ranch’s Shangri-La
Colorway pictured: Quest (part of the Colorful Eclectic line)
Skein details: 400 yd / 2 oz (365m / 56g) skeins / 50% Tibetan Yak / 50% Mulberry Silk
Knitting needles: US 1, 2.25 mm / 28 stitches & 34 rows over 4 inches (10 cm)
Crochet hook: US 00 / 30 sc & 38 rows over 4 inches (10 cm)
Cons: If you don’t like laceweight yarn, this one’s probably not for you.
Pros: The combination of surprisingly lightweight yak fiber with silk gives you something particularly lush to knit with – a real treat!
Pattern Ideas: Last year’s Read Along Knit Along featured The Scarf of Dreams, which has a lot of great lace action that would be fun to work in this yarn. Crocheters might enjoy holding this yarn double with some favorite stash scraps to make the Scrap Scallops Scarf.
