Sign ups for our Baa Baa Brighouse Book Club Bundle – Wide Sargasso Sea are now open!
Introducing a brand new monthly offering from Baa Baa Brighouse – the Baa Baa Brighouse Book Club! Actually, it’s the Baa Baa Brighouse yarn, book and tea club to be precise. We are teaming up with Penguin Clothbound Classics and the producers of fine literary inspired teas, Rosie Lea Tea, for this new club.
Each month we will choose a new book and author from the Penguin Clothbound Classics series and create a gorgeous, unique, hand dyed yarn inspired by the beautiful cover of the book. For our next installment, we will be celebrating the work of modernist, Jean Rhys, and her novel, ‘Wide Sargasso Sea’, which gives voice to Antoinette Cosway, otherwise known as Mr Rochester’s wife from Charlotte Bronte’s ‘Jane Eyre’.
You will receive 200g (two skeins) of deliciously hand dyed yarn, sumptuously soft, 100% British Bluefaced Leicester 4 ply high twist sock yarn inspired by the book cover, a copy of the collectible hardback Clothbound Classic and a tin or packet of tea (please note that on occasions literary inspired tea may be sourced from other suppliers as well as Rosie Lea Tea). Our Book Club Bundles will make perfect gifts for any yarn, book or tea lover or as an extra special treat for yourself.
Bundles will be available to purchase until Thursday February 29th and will be posted out shortly afterwards once dyeing is complete. We will be dyeing extra skeins which will form part of a new permanent Baa Baa Brighouse Literary Greats range of yarns which will be available to buy as single skeins in future.
