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.
