Bijou Basin Ranch had taken their softness factor further, and recently created a worsted-weight version of their popular Bijou Bliss sport weight yarn, a 50/50 blend of Tibetan yak and Cormo wool. Called Big Bijou Bliss, the new base comes in 160 yards and would be great for hats, cowls or fingerless mitts. It’s available in five new limited-edition colorways dyed by Colorado dyer MJ Yarns. The colors are also available on BBR’s popular Tibetan Dream sock yarn base. This is a limited-edition base, so if you’d like to get a start on some fall projects (maybe for Rhinebeck?), you should jump on it now.
It’s Christmas in July out in California, and the Slipped Stitch Studios crew is celebrating with a Black Friday-level sale.
