We Review Rowan – Fine Art Aran

Browsing around the yarn department in John Lewis one day - long before Baa Baa Brighouse became a reality - Rowan's Fine Art Aran, an unusual looking yarn immediately caught my eye. It was available in several colourways - each one quite unique and distinctive. From vibrant yellows and greens to subtle blues and deep reds, it was one of those yarns that I knew I could quite easily fall in love with. Made with a mixture of wool, mohair, mulberry silk and alpaca, it is incredibly soft, warm and has a lustrous sheen. I've since discovered that it is hand painted in South Africa which is how the beautiful colour palette is achieved. Not quite sure what to make with the two skeins of Fandango I found myself holding, I wandered across to the pattern books and discovered the Rowan Mini Collections - Fine Art Aran. This is a fantastic...

Sylvan Tiger Yarn Has Arrived at Baa Baa Brighouse!

A selection of beautiful hand dyed British Bluefaced Leicester by Sylvan Tiger Yarn has arrived at Baa Baa Brighouse. As the very first stockist of this gorgeous home-grown Yorkshire yarn, we're very excited to show off the beautiful colourways Katie, owner, of Sylvan Tiger has come up with. From beautiful sea greens to luscious lavender, vibrant pinks to the golden shades of Autumn, we're sure you'll find a yarn you love. Katie said: “I use wool sourced from British suppliers and where possible from British sheep, processed and spun in Britain and natural dyes mostly in extract form which gives better repeatability of colourways and allows me to dye year-round. Every once in a while I’ll have ‘Limited Editions’ dyed with material I’ve carefully harvested myself from my garden or local environment. “My inspiration for colours and...
