Product Description

Shimmery, light, and oh-so-soft, this blend of Yak and Bamboo is as delightful to knit with as it is to wear! Soft and lightweight yak fiber is blended to perfection with breathable bamboo fibers which are also naturally anti-bacterial. This yarn has it all: softness and strength, plus an excellent hand and drape, all in a versatile sport weight! Available in a soft natural brown, a creamy natural white as well as 13 brilliant semi-solid and 5 variegated colors hand-dyed by Lorna's Laces.

Colors may vary slightly by dye lot, please make certain to purchase sufficient quantities to complete your project. 
This is a light sport weight yarn.  Each skein is 2.0oz (56.5 grams) provides 180 yards, 16 wpi or light sport weight, No.4 -5 needles, 6 stitches per inch.

Important Note: Bijou Basin Ranch recently increased the put up this yarn, Lhasa Wilderness, our 75/25 Yak/bamboo blend.  Lhasa Wilderness has gone from 180 yards per skein to 250, an increase of 35%. What that means is that if you are going to knit one of our older patterns you will now need fewer skeins of yarn to complete the project

The long and short of it is that for every four skeins the old projects call for, you now only need to purchase three! See the chart below for more details.

  2. Love it! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Jul 2014

    I'm using the Parsifal color way for a linen stitch scarf. It is a pleasure to work with and I can't wait to wear the final product.
    I knit a little every night and I can't run the skein out (and the scarf is already 32 inches long.) I'll post a picture to the Facebook page.


  3. Yarn of many options 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Jul 2013

    One feel of this softly flowing fiber and your imagination will soar. Does it want to circle your neck as a lacy cowl or a generous shawl? Will it keep your hands or head warm for the winter? Maybe it will work up to be your go to tank top when the weather is changing. Lhasa Wilderness knows no bounds. This light sport weight blend is suitable for winter socks or - held double - works up quickly into outerwear. This is truly the yarn of many options whether you need something for your next project, your stash or your soul.
