Baa Baa Brighouse to be the First Stockist of Sylvan Tiger Yarn

We're super excited to announce that Baa Baa Brighouse is to be the very first stockist of Sylvan Tiger Yarn - adding another independent Yorkshire hand dyer to our catalogue of suppliers. Katie of Sylvan Tiger Yarn specialises in creating luxury yarns using only natural dyes and British wool, particularly Bluefaced Leicester, an ethos we very much support at Baa Baa Brighouse. She said: "I use wool sourced from British suppliers and where possible from British sheep, processed and spun in Britain. I use 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 combinations often comes from my local...

Knits for Dad

Father’s Day falls on Sunday June 15th and if you’ve no idea what to get Dad this year, don’t worry, you can knit him something special instead. If your Dad is difficult to buy for and already has a stockpile of ties, a knitted gift is the perfect solution. It is personal, unique and 100% guaranteed that Dad won’t already have it.
