In Yellowstone National Park, the Phillips, Greg and Fern rivers join at a junction called Three Rivers which feature hot springs and a spectacular waterfall.
The Three Rivers Shawl is an assymetrical shaped shawl knit from the top down in The Buffalo Wool Company’s Sexy (50% Bison Down/50% Silk) and Earth(90% Bison Down/10% Nylon). This yarn adds to the celebration of this beautiful area in Yellowstone National Park. The pictured shawl features three lace panels representing rivers knit in Sexy, squishy garter stitch panels representing earth and knit in Earth, and a generous lace border knit in Sexy representing waterfalls.
The Buffalo Wool Company is offering two different discounted kits for this shawl. The first kit includes two skeins of Earth and one skein of Sexy, the second kit includes two skeins of Happiness (40% bison down, 40% merino, 20% bamboo) and one skein of Sexy. You can choose your favorite colorway of Sexy for either kit.
When my family was here in July, we made several trips to Yellowstone to see the sites and enjoy the water.
On our way out of the park we stopped in West Yellowstone, Montana for some yummy mexican food
and my Honeypie discovered a LYS – Yarn & Quilt Shop, aka Send It Home
I was delighted to see that among other fab yarns, they carried one of my favorite yarn brands, The Buffalo Wool Company.
I only have two skeins of Buffalo Wool in my stash.
Here are my FO’s,
and one WIP.
Ron and Theresa Miskin (no relation, but how cool that we share the same last name!) are the owners of The Buffalo Wool Company. They are committed to helping conserve and promote the American plains bison and the ranchers that raise them and they stand behind every product 100%.
Why bison? I can personally attest to their website claim that bison is soft enough to wrap a baby in, tough enough to keep a mountain man warm in a blizzard!
Some other awesome bison down fiber facts:
-Hypo-Allergenic – No known allergies to the fiber.
-Water-wicking- Bison down has a moisture regain of about 30%, keeping you warm and comfortable even when wet.
– Easy Care- Because its not hollow or have barbs like wool, it doesnt shrink.
The Buffalo Wool Company is currently a nominee for Martha Stewart’s American Made award. Follow this link to help them win!
