Karma Not Drama‘ is the name of our brand new charity yarn in aid of Just Like Us, the LGBT+ young people’s charity, which works with schools to change people’s understanding and attitudes so that growing up LGBT+ no longer has to be unacceptably tough.

Recently, someone that I care very dearly for, was made the subject of a campaign of hatred, lies and intimidation, due in no small part to a lack of understanding, compassion  and empathy by those old enough to know better.

Perhaps if they had received a more inclusive education which celebrates diversity and undoubtedly leads to emotional maturity, they may have stopped to think twice before attempting a character assassination which could have potentially destroyed a young person’s life.

So, in the wake of the inaugural Trans History Week, at the beginning of Mental Health Awareness Week and as we rapidly approach Pride Month, it gives me great pleasure to launch our new yarn which will hopefully help to challenge unacceptable thoughts and behaviours towards a marginalised group of society that wishes for nothing more than peace and equality.

Baa Baa Brighouse will not turn a profit from this yarn and £5 from every skein sold will be donated to the charity.

The yarn itself, Karma Not Drama, is a 100g skein of hand dyed 4 ply yarn comprising 80% Falkland Wool and 20% Mulberry Silk. It combines pale pink, blue and white tones with gentle bright pink and blue speckling in each skein, giving you 400m of woolly loveliness to craft with.
