We’re very excited to announce that Baa Baa Brighouse will be stocking a fabulous range of Louisa Harding yarns.
Louisa, who trained with Rowan and still lives in Holmfirth, West Yorkshire, is a world famous knitwear designer with her own range of gorgeous yarns.
At Baa Baa Brighouse we love two things – vintage style and natural fibres and we feel Louisa Harding yarns epitomises both.
We will be stocking a range of Grace and Grace Harmonies yarn which are both made from 50% silk and 50% merino wool. Grace will be available in beautiful solid shades of Frost, Cheeky, Willow, Palma and Squire, whilst Grace Harmonies, a lovely variegated yarn will come in shades of Beat, Ragtime, Dizzy Swing and Jazz.
Both Grace and Grace Harmonies come in 50g balls giving 100 metres of yarn per ball.
Baa baa Brighouse will also be stocking a lovely range of Amitola, which is made with 80% wool and 20% silk. This will be available in Hummingbird, Seascape, Marmalade and two shades of Salsa – a vibrant mix of pinks and reds or deep shades of teal greens and ocean blues.
Amitola is a self striping yarn which comes in 50g balls giving 250 metres of yarn per ball.
To compliment the range, we will also be stocking Louisa’s pattern booklet, ‘Harmony’, to be used with Grace and Grace Harmonies yarn. It contains seven signature vintage inspired designs including shawls, capelets and sweaters.
To compliment the Amitola range, the ‘Amitola’ booklet will also be available. Louisa’s designs look as though they fell right off the page of a script from ‘Downton Abbey’. They include scarves, shawls, capelets, berets, beautiful cardigans and glamorous sleeveless tops which really show the Amitola stripes off to their best.
Louisa’s latest published book, ‘Knits from an English Rose’, will also be available at Baa Baa Brighouse and brings together a multitude of patterns all in Louisa’s typical vintage style – scarves, shawls, hats, gloves, bags – the book has them all and if you’re a lover of vintage and in particular, vintage knits, then it really is an investment – a real treasure trove of loveliness.
We hope to have Louisa’s range of yarns and patterns available for you to buy within the next week so please check back for updates. In the meantime, why not take a look at our other fabulous Yorkshire yarns and vintage hand knits – we’re confident you’ll find something to inspire you!
