Welcome to our Wovember Sale!

You've all heard of Movember but here at Baa Baa Brighouse, we're celebrating Wovember! Wovember was established in 2011 to celebrate wool, its origin and to campaign for clearer labeling and descriptions in the fashion industry to ensure consumers know where their wool and wool products are farmed, manufactured and processed. As a big believer in British wool and in particular, that which can claim a strong connection to Yorkshire, we're supporting the campaign to raise awareness. Throughout the month of November, we will be holding a wonderful Wovember sale, offering a fabulous 10% discount on many brands of British wool, including Rowan, Laura's Loom, Eden Cottage Yarns, Sylvan Tiger Yarns, Herdy, West Yorkshire Spinners and more!

Looking Back At British Wool Weekend 2014

As relative newbies on the exhibiting circuit, we're still finding our feet but British Wool Weekend was a good place to start. Held at Harrogate Showground, it brought together a host of producers and retailers to celebrate all that is great about the British wool industry and  its heritage. We'd like to extend a big thank you to fellow exhibitors who made us feel so welcome and of course to all of our fantastic customers who came to visit our stand. Louisa Harding's Amitola proved to be the big hit of the weekend with shoppers snapping up the latest Autumn colourways of Fairy, Wishes and Winter Rose - to the point that we sold out! West Yorkshire Spinners was another firm favourite with colours from the Autumnal inspired Spice Rack range of their Signature 4 Ply selling well. We're now looking forward to our next event at Armley...

We Review Laura’s Loom Yarn

I first stumbled across Laura Rosenzweig's yarn when researching the wool industry and in particular, independent yarn labels with strong connections to Yorkshire. I quickly realised that Laura's Loom encompassed the same ethos that I wanted to promote through Baa Baa Brighouse and that the origin and subsequent journey that her yarn took, from sheep to needle, was of real importance to Laura. Spun as a single ply, this 100% Bluefaced Leicester wool, was originally intended for weaving but being an experimentalist and wanting to steer Baa Baa Brighouse in a non-commercial direction, I made inquiries as to how suitable the yarn was for hand knitting. Laura was kind enough to parcel up a box of samples for me to try out. The Bluefaced Leicester Naturals range immediately struck a chord with me. In my opinion, it is probably the closest...

We Review Sylvan Tiger Yarn

I first met Katie Pearce, otherwise known as Sylvan Tiger Yarn at Wharfe Wool Fair, having spotted her hand dyed yarn on Twitter. Her stand immediately caught my eye with its wonderful vibrant palette and I quickly snapped up a hank of Summer Berries before it was all gone! I've always been the type to act on instinct and I knew I couldn't leave without asking if Katie would be interested in Baa Baa Brighouse stocking her yarn. To my delight, she said yes and we became the very first stockist of her home-grown Yorkshire yarn. Katie, who is based in Leeds, uses wool, predominantly Bluefaced Leicester, sourced from British suppliers and natural dye in extract form to achieve her unique colourways. Because Katie's inspiration comes from the local landscape of Yorkshire, the North York Moors, the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District, it...
