Lani’s Lana ~ Fine Rambouillet Wool


Lani is a sheep rancher and fiber artist in Surprise Valley, CA. She makes yarn, combed top and fabric with raw wool raised on her family ranch, The Bare Ranch. All the wool is raised to be certified Climate Beneficial. To achieve this designation, the Bare Ranch does conservation work on the ranch with the goal of drawing down carbon into the soil where it is beneficial and creates healthy soils.


Lani recently joined Bonnie Chase in the Warner Mountain Weavers Store and Studio in Cedarville, CA. Working out of the Weavers shop gives her the time and tools for natural dyeing using plants mostly wild gathered in the Great Basin. The shop offers classes and a wide variety of yarns as well as rugs, accessories and equipment for weaving and spinning.


Given the size of the Bare Ranch wool clip, Lani has been able to sell her raw wool to The North Face, Brooklyn Tweed, A Verb for Keeping Warm, Sincere Sheep and many other indie dyers and local yarn stores. The North Face has released a line of accessories and garments that they can call Climate Beneficial, thanks to the conservation work being done on the Bare Ranch.


Lani loves to sell to commercial artisans and welcomes wholesale customers. Please email her at [email protected] for more information.
