Happy Monday, friends! We’re at week 26, but who is counting? I went looking for a baby or pregancy photo on pexels, but they were all ridiculous, so here’s a picture of a buffalo instead.
Speaking of bison, did you know they have incredible fiber? Bison produce a downy undercoat that is short, warm, and crimpy with a micron count in the range of 14-18. It is typically considered a luxury fiber and is similar to cashmere or angora. Like these fibers, over time, items made with bison wool get a nice halo. It is also a nice (though expensive) alternative for those with a wool or lanolin allergy. Bison fiber makes a particularly beautiful lace yarn!
Also, c/o The Bump, here is a photo for week 26. Apparently my baby is the size of kale, whatever the heck that means. Vague fruit and vegetable comparisons seem to be the current baby rage.
