We are a diversified livestock operation raising cattle, lamb, hay, and, of course – wool. The Bare Ranch was the first ranch settled in Surprise Valley at the eastern foot of the Warner Mountain Range. It was on the route that Peter Lassen scouted for pioneers to travel to California during the Gold Rush. The trade route later became a ranching community. The Bare Family settled here and the ranch still bears their name. The fourth generation of the Estill Family is now actively involved in the ranch operations. Lani’s Lana is the dream and creation of Lani Estill who loves wool and is a fiber artist. The development of a line of yarn was a natural extension of the ranching business and Lani’s love of wool and natural fibers.
Our wool is grown in sustainable, natural methods rooted in tradition with respect for earth, animals, people and the product created for future generation…full circle, natural, with no harmful dyes or chemicals.
Our goal is to offer a product that is produced right here in Northwest Nevada and Northern California, a product that is often only imported from countries far away. Although we sell in bulk to companies like Pendleton Woolen Mills, we have an amazing superfine wool that is just so good, that home spinners and fiber artists should be able to access it. too. Please take a minute to visit our website to see all the fine yarns that are available.
