November Yan Tan Tethera Yarn Club


Sign ups for the November 2017 Yan Tan Tethera Yarn Club are now open!

Our dyer for November is the talented Louise Lavender of The Cryptozoologist based in Beverley, East Yorkshire. Louise has produced yarn for the Yan Tan Tethera Club for several years and never fails to disappoint. She often finds inspiration from the realm of fantasy for her colour combinations.

For the November Yan Tan Tethera Yarn Club, Louise will take her inspiration from the image, ‘Sunset on the Calder’, by Shutterspot Photography. The picture was taken in Brighouse, West Yorkshire, overlooking the River Calder.

All Yan Tan Tethera Yarn Club subscriptions are presented in a gift box tied with satin ribbon and will include a copy of the inspiration photograph and a little complimentary Yorkshire gift from Baa Baa Brighouse.

Members of the March 2016 club received a lavender bag from Yorkshire Lavender, in April they received a Yorkshire Rose bath truffle from The Yorkshire Soap Company, in May they received a bag of traditional Yorkshire Mixtures from Dobson & Sons, in June they received a screen printed notebook from The Knitting Goddess, in July they received a strawberries and cream lip balm from natural skincare company, Sweet Cecily’s, in August boxes included Forget Me Not seeds from RHS Harlow Carr, in September members received a Baa Baa Brew yarn pop courtesy of Baa Baa Brighouse, in October a ball of Erika Knight British Blue Wool, in November a Herdy pin badge showing support for the Wovember campaign and in December a ball of Louisa Harding Cassia Prints.

In January members received a set of Baa Baa Brighouse fabric buttons, in February a ‘Keep Calm and Cast On’ keyring, in March a Marie Curie daffodil scented candle, in April a ball of Louisa Harding Cassia from Baa Baa Brighouse and in May a Bluebell Bath Bomb from The Soap Company, Keswick which creates fantastic employment opportunities for disabled and disadvantaged people. In June, boxes included a skein of Susan Crawford Fenella, in July some locally handmade tea tree and aloe vera soap, in August a Yorkshire Rose bath bomb from the Yorkshire Soap Company – perfect to celebrate Yorkshire Day, in September a Yorkshire phrase book and in October an exclusively dyed yarn pop from Baa Baa Brighouse. Each month the gift will be different.

Louise will be using her unicorn sock yarn base for her project which is a 70%/30% Bluefaced Leicester and nylon mix, giving approximately 400m of yarny goodness!

Sign ups for the November 2017 Yan Tan Tethera Yarn Club are now open. All yarn parcels will be posted out in early November.

If you wish to participate in our lovely yarn club, simply purchase a subscription to receive a skein of exclusive yarn. If you would like more than one skein, simply add an extra subscription to your basket.

Baa Baa Brighouse has teamed up with a number of Yorkshire based indie dyers to bring you the Yan Tan Tethera Yarn Club.

As a member, each month you will receive an exclusive skein of quality Yorkshire yarn that has been sourced, spun and dyed locally by hand. Our dyers will be taking their inspiration from photographs of the Yorkshire landscape and nature by Gary Turner of Shutterspot Photography.

Each dyer will use a different photograph guaranteeing that every monthly batch of yarn is beautiful and completely unique from the next. The dyer will decide on the yarn most suited to the project but will aim to uphold our ethos of using only British breeds and Yorkshire yarns.
