Product Description

BBR Master Color Series Limited Edition Color!

From our "Winter Begone" series, Absinthe, dyed exclusively for Bijou Basin Ranch by MJ Yarns!

Lets face it, nothing says soft, warm and cozy like top quality Cashmere!  And we are proud to present some of the highest quality cashmere you can find direct from the goat herds of Mongolia to you.  This ultra soft yarn is the world renowned for creating scarves, sweaters, cowls, and any other project when you are looking for soft & warm without being bulky.  Whether it is for yourself or for a gift, this 100% Cashmere yarn is to die for.

 Welcome to the second installment of the Master Color Series! This time of year, we start to hope for winter’s end. Few things in life offer better respite and give more hope than a fine cocktail and even better yarn. So, this time around we named all six of this series’ colors after drinks!

Absinthe Recipe:

First you pour roughly three ounces of absinthe into a heavy parfait-style stemmed glass. A perforated absinthe spoon (sometimes very elaborately so) is set upon the rim of the glass and on the spoon is placed a cube of sugar. Ice-cold water is ever so slowly dripped from a glass carafe designed specifically for that purpose, onto the cube. The sugar dissolves and you continue pouring until the ratio of absinthe to water is about two to five parts, depending upon your taste and fortitude. The emerald green absinthe releases a floral bouquet and clouds into a pale opalescent green or yellow right before your eyes, filling you with a sense of creation and mystery. Give the mix a spin with the spoon and drink like you dripped - slowly.
