Shaniko, Oregon (PRWEB) January 31, 2014
The Olympic Games in Sochi Russia will feature wool yarn from Imperial Stock Ranch in Oregon. They have teamed up with Ralph Lauren to create a hand knit sweater for the opening ceremony. Aside from the hundreds of sweaters created for the Athletes, Ralph Lauren made an additional 300 sweaters to sell.
I got a call from a man asking me about our yarnshe told me he was with product development at Ralph Lauren. I had thought he was a local yarn shop owner, but he assured me he was on Madison Avenue in New York. I told him that I was sitting outside in the Oregon desert and asked him if he could hear my sheep. I held up the phone and let him listen.
The Imperial Stock Ranch is a family owned and operated ranch located on more than 30,000 acres of Oregons beautiful high desert where youll find resident populations of elk, deer, antelope, game birds and fish. It is also here that they produce grains, hay, grasses, cattle and sheep, creating a variety of consumer products including high quality Imperial Stock Ranch wool knitting yarn.
