Bijou Basin Ranch

I was greeted in Denver with a snowstorm, which was a little shocking after Austin but within a few days we were driving out to visit the yaks in brilliant sunshine. The yaks are from the Himalayas so Colorado’s crazy high altitude climate is perfect for them (running in Denver was er… interesting!). I’ve admired Bijou Basin’s yarns for a long time and there’s a pattern coming soon(ish!) in one of their yarns so it was really interesting to meet a few of the animals that provide their fibre. And we really did meet them, they were super friendly and eager to eat treats out of our hands.

We even snuck in a little photoshoot – the yaks were rather too interested in the socks though!
