Baa Baa Blends
Introducing the brand new yarn for Spring/Summer 2018 from Baa Baa Brighouse. Baa Baa Blends is a 100% British Wensleydale 4 Ply yarn that is hand dyed to a very subtle gradient. Each skein is wound into a tight ball before being dipped in a dye bath, allowing the dye to be absorbed by the outer strands of yarn whilst the inner strands of the ball retain their natural colour. The result gives a beautiful subtle gradient and slight variegated effect to the middle of the skein before returning to the lustrous natural tones of undyed Wensleydale. Available in six gorgeous shades inspired by summer puddings – Lemon Meringue, Peach Melba, Strawberry Tart, Gooseberry Fool, Blueberry Pie and Blackcurrant Sorbet.
Baa Baa Blends lends itself perfectly to shawls, scarfs, wraps and other accessories as Wensleydale is a lustrous yarn with a delicate sheen and fabulous drape. With our latest yarn you have the choice of knitting from the dyed or undyed end depending on the overall look required.
